New vaccine technologies includes the ongoing development of mRNA vaccines which offer high potency, capacity for rapid development and lower costs with safe administration potential.
mRNA vaccines work by giving cells in the body a blueprint for how to fight off infectious disease. This recent breakthrough differs from traditional vaccines, which use an inactivated virus that triggers the immune system. mRNA vaccines instead provide a genetic code that acts as instructions, showing the immune system how it can recognise and fight the disease. This safely equips the body to fight viruses without needing to use the virus itself, meaning vaccines can be produced more efficiently, at lower costs and with fewer risks.
