Moderna Vaccine is an mRNA vaccine.  This vaccine provides instructions to our bodies on how to create antibodies to fight the covid virus.  It does not affect our DNA in any way.  This vaccine is 94% effective at preventing severe illness and hospitalization due to covid-19 after you have received both vaccine doses.  You are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the second dose.  More than 106 million doses of the Moderna vaccine have been administered.

Common side effects of the Moderna covid vaccine are swelling, redness and pain at the injection site.  Tiredness, headache, muscle aches, chills, fever and nausea are also common.  These symptoms generally last for 12 – 48 hours.
