Pro-life approved vaccines
Comirnaty is a vaccine that can prevent people from becoming ill due to COVID-19. Comirnaty contains no live virus and cannot give you COVID-19. It contains the genetic code for an important part of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, known as the spike protein. After receiving the vaccine, your body makes copies of the spike protein, and your immune system will learn to recognize and fight the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes.
As there is not yet sufficient evidence to assess the impact of this vaccine on transmission, public health and social measures must continue, including face masks, physical distancing, hand washing, appropriate ventilation and other measures, if appropriate, in certain environments, depending on COVID-19 epidemiology and potential risks of emerging variants. Government guidance on public health and social measures should continue to be followed by both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. SAGE will update this advice as information on the impact of vaccination on virus transmission and indirect protection is assessed.
The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is a messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine based on the virus of coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). The host cells receive the instructions from the mRNA to produce the protein of the S-antigen, which is unique to SARS-CoV-2, enabling the body to generate an immune response and to retain this information in memory immune cells. The effectiveness of clinical trials in participants who received the full series of vaccines (2 doses) and had negative baseline SARS-CoV-2 status was about 94% based on a median follow-up period of 9 weeks. The data reviewed at this time support the conclusion that the known and potential benefits of the mRNA-1273 vaccine outweigh the known and potential risks. (Update pending)
