Eye Issue, Diabetes, Jabs and Mental Health
The following is part of a report printed in The Scotsman newspaper
While AstraZeneca was one of the three vaccines offered to Brits during the Covid vaccination programme (it's the vaccine I had), it is not among the vaccines being commonly used for booster jabs.
The reason for AstraZeneca not being used as a booster is due to the fact that it is not an mRNA vaccine - unlike Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna.
Typically, flu jabs and many similar vaccines, will encourage our immune response by injecting a weakened germs or parts of a virus into our bodies to trigger an immune response.
But mRNA vaccines (messenger RNA vaccines) are those which instruct our bodies to reproduce the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and break this down through a direct immune response.
These kinds of vaccines have been used in trials for all sorts of health solutions for years, but have only been fully trialled and licensed for the first time for Pfizer and Moderna’s Covid vaccines.
