The COVID-19 vaccines authorized for use in the United States are Messenger RNA vaccines—also called mRNA vaccines. MRNA vaccines teach our cells how to make a protein that triggers an immune response inside our bodies. That immune response, which produces antibodies, is what protects us from getting infected if the real virus enters our bodies.

- They cannot give you COVID-19 and will not affect your DNA in any way.
