- mRNA stands for messenger ribonucleic acid.
- mRNA vaccines do not use the live virus that causes COVID-19.
- mRNA never enters the nucleus of the cell, which is where our DNA (genetic material) is kept.
- The cell breaks down and gets rid of the mRNA soon after it is finished using the instructions.
