I Beg Your Parton?
With Vaccines for the novel coronavirus springing up around the world, it is a time to rejoice. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
Both Pfizer and Moderna have reported an mRNA vaccine with 95% efficacy in treating COVID19.
The latter company, Moderna, featured a sponsor from none other than Dolly Parton. In April, Dolly Parton pledged 1 million dollars to the creation of a vaccine with Moderna. This donation has know bared fruit.
Vaccine, Vaccine, Vaccine, oh please take my arm!
The creation of the vaccine by both Pfizer and Moderna is a novel method using mRNA. no trace of COVID19 is contained within the vaccine. Instead proteins similar to those surrounding COVID19 particles are injected into the patient. This creates an immune response in which the patient will develop antibodies for the actual COVID19 virus should it ever come along.
Working 9-5, what a way to have Efficacy!
With 95% efficacy, these vaccines recently produced have an amazing effectiveness in creating an immune response in a subject. These subjects were patients in the age range over 70, the at-risk age group for COVID19.
This is something for us all to celebrate, 2020 is looking up for once and we are approaching a time of extraordinary optimism. On to Dollyworld!
