The COVID-19 vaccines that are available (Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Moderna) do not include live COVID-19 virus. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have a very small piece of messenger RNA (mRNA), a type of material that our bodies already use to give the body instructions for making a protein from the COVID-19 virus. Once this protein is made, it tells the body to make antibodies to fight it. The Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine uses a small piece of DNA protected by a harmless adenovirus cell to deliver the instructions for making a protein from the COVID-19 virus. If you are exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19, you will already have antibodies to fight the virus, and you will not get sick.
