Choice for coronavirus vaccine
It makes sense to be choosy in what vaccines to take. Vaccines have different procedures and mode of action.
Sinovac’s CoronaVac and the vaccines made by Sinopharm of China and which was used to vaccinate members of the Presidential Security Group use the traditional way of producing vaccines – using inactivated virus to generate antibodies when injected. These vaccines have mild efficacy.
The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna of the United States process their vaccines through the messenger RNA technology and when injected could neutralize the virus.
Vaccination is a remedial measure. The sustainable way of eradicating viruses is through spiritual healing, proper nutrition and hygiene, having a wholesome environment, and living a pleasant life style. — PERCIVAL B. ALIPIT, Baguio City
