2022 Pfizer mRNA Flu Vaccine Study
mRNA vaccines have changed the way we fight infectious diseases. The mRNA Flu Vaccine study will help us learn if an investigational vaccine using mRNA technology is safe and can help the body produce antibodies which may help fight off the flu. There is no weakened or dead flu virus in the investigational vaccine.
Sponsored by Pfizer.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONAL FLYER
The immune system is the body’s natural defense against infections. Vaccines help the immune system recognize viruses or bacteria that may invade the body in the future. Some vaccines contain a small amount of the virus or bacteria from the disease they are designed to help prevent. The virus has either been killed or weakened so it cannot make a person sick. Other vaccines contain only a part of the germ from the disease.
The investigational vaccine being studied is a mRNA vaccine. mRNA vaccines do not contain any killed or weakened virus. mRNA vaccines work by telling your body to produce proteins that look just like certain parts of the virus. The immune system reacts to these proteins in a similar way to a real virus. As a result, certain immune system cells “member” how to recognize these proteins quickly and fight the real infection if it happens in the future.
