I have a good news story to share about Covid-19 vaccines! Dr. Maria Elena Bottazzi and Peter Hotez have created a subunit Covid-19 vaccine. The vaccine extracts specific parts of the virus. These parts are purified and cannot cause an active infection. However, it allows people's bodies to create an immune response. Since this is a subunit vaccine, refrigeration is all that is needed. Sub-zero conditions are unnecessary.
Now, the most amazing part of this vaccine is patent-free! This means any country in the world can make this vaccine without paying royalties. This is a fantastic gift that these scientists have given humanity. Vaccinating the world will slow down the replication of this virus. A slower replication rate means less variants will be created. I am happy about this prospect as we deal with the Omicron variant. Thank you Drs. Maria Elena Bottazzi and Peter J. Hotez and team for your work to make the world a healthier place!
