ViewPoint: What Is In The Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 Vaccines

0

By Peter Chow

This is the full list of ingredients in the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine, according to the FDA:

Active Ingredient
mRNA –  a synthetic messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) encoding the spike glycoprotein of SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Lipids
(4-hydroxybutyl)azanediyl)bis(hexane-6,1-diyl)bis(2-hexyldecanoate)
2 [(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide
1,2-Distearoyl-sn-glycero-3- phosphocholine
Cholesterol

Salts
Potassium chloride
Monobasic potassium phosphate
Sodium chloride
Dibasic sodium phosphate dihydrate

Sugar
Sucrose

The mRNA is messenger RNA that encodes the viral spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 and which instructs the body to produce the coronavirus spike protein, which in turn, triggers the body’s immune cells to produce antibodies to the coronavirus.

After the vaccine prompts an immune response, your body will eliminate the protein and the mRNA. However, the antibodies will stay put – it’s just not known at this point how long they’ll last.

The lipids are also a crucial element.  The lipids, which are fats, are very important because they form a little spherical shell around that mRNA.   The lipids help keep the mRNA intact and stable until it gets into your body and starts doing its work.

The potassium chloride, monobasic potassium phosphate, sodium chloride, and dibasic sodium phosphate dehydrate are used to maintain pH and stability of the vaccine.  Sodium chloride is just salt.  And the sucrose, which is a form of sugar, is used as a stabilizer.

The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine is a white to off-white, sterile, preservative-free frozen suspension for intramuscular injection. The vaccine contains:

ACTIVE INGREDIENT

cholesterol
1,2-distearoyl-snglycero-3-phosphocholine [DSPC])

SALTS AND ACIDS
tromethamine
tromethamine hydrochloride
acetic acid,
sodium acetate

SUGAR
sucrose

Tromethamine or THAM, is an organic compound extensively used in biochemistry and molecular biology as a component of buffer solutions for nucleic acids, like RNA.
Tromethamol hydrochloride (Tromethamine hydrochloride) is a biologically inert amino alcohol of low toxicity, which buffers carbon dioxide and acids for pH control in the physiological range.
The tromethamine hydrochloride, acetic acid and sodium acetate are used to maintain pH and stability of the vaccine.  The sucrose, which is a sugar, is used as a stabilizer.

No mercury, formaldehyde, aluminium or cells, aborted fetal or otherwise,  in either vaccine
