#20 - mRNA Vaccine Innovations - The COVID Present and Beyond‪!‬ We Are Here Tomorrow

    • Technology

The FDA has approved two mRNA vaccines for mass-distribution, a milestone for the "new" type of vaccine tech. So, John and Zach want to know more! We run through the history of vaccination tech in the US, as well as the state of distrust in vaccines. After that, we work through how a virus invades the body, how vaccines are used to combat it, and how mRNA is used specifically. Then, we hop over to Today, and highlight the advantages and nuances of mRNA vaccines; how it affects manufacturing, how it might scale, and what incremental improvements are being worked on right now! This gives us a perfect launchpad to ponder our future with mRNA vaccines, including Tesla-made mRNA microfactories and universal vaccines! Lastly, we discuss how this tech might impact our society, before saying "au revoir" to We Are Here Tomorrow Season 2!!
