Did you know that there are several different types of vaccines?
For most of us when we think of a vaccine, we just think of Measels or Polio. We don’t really know much about what is in a vaccine, let alone how it is made. Which has really helped create an unquestioning and compliant landscape for the profit-first global conglomerates of the pharmaceutical industry. If knowledge is power, we have largely been a powerless people for far too long. It’s time to change that.
There are actually several types of vaccines, and they can be developed in a number of ways, using a number of methods, ingredients, and formulations.
Types of vaccine include:
- Inactivated vaccines– Uses a killed version of the virus. Now known to provide weak, short-lived immunity, which is why several boosters are continually added to the schedule.
- Hep A
- Flu (shot only)
- Polio (shot only)
- Live-attenuated vaccines– Uses a weakened, or attenuated, form of the virus. These vaccines need to be kept at cooler temperatures and can be problematic for people with weakened or suppressed immune systems or other long term health problems.
- MMR (Measles Mumps Rubella)
- Varicella (Chicken Pox)
- Messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines**- While the claim is that researchers have been working with mRNA for decades, the fact of the matter is that no vaccine had ever successfully been brought to market, until the Covid-19 vaccine. It works using genetically engineered mRNA to instruct your cells to make specific proteins. (For Covid, it is the S protein) After injection, theoretically, your muscle cells would begin making the S protein pieces, and displaying them on cell surfaces, causing your body to create antibodies.
- Subunit, recombinant, polysaccharide, and conjugate vaccines– Uses specific pieces of the virus, such as the protein, sugar, or capsid (the casing around the germ).
- Hib (Haemophilus Influenzae type b)
- Heb B
- HPV (Human papillomavirus)
- Whopping Cough (part of the DTaP vaccine)
- Pneumococcal disease
- Meningococcal disease
- Covid-19 (Novavax)
- Toxoid vaccines– Use a toxin (a harmful substance) that is made by the germ that causes the disease, thus creating immunity to the parts of the germ that cause the disease, instead of the germ itself.
- Viral vector vaccines– Genetic material from the virus is placed in a modified version of a different virus, called a viral vector. Once the viral vector enters the cell, it delivers the genetic material it is carrying, thus instructing the cell to make copies of that protein. Once your cells display that protein on their surface, your immune system should theoretically respond by creating antibodies and defensive white blood cells.
** Messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines were developed in 2020 in response to the “Covid-19 Pandemic”. Pfizer and Moderna each had mRNA based covid vaccines that were brought to market late 2020, and early 2021 under Emergency Use Authorizations. At the time this development was celebrated by Public Health Officials, Government Officials, Medical Professionals and even a wide portion of the population. It was touted as a triumph of modern medicine! The successful development of the next generation of vaccine! The reality, however, has been far less triumphant as the adverse events reports soared into the hundreds of thousands, and then even into the millions. Making this vaccine the single most dangerous, and deadly vaccine on the market per the post-marketing data. However, even as the injury and death tolls began to sky-rocket, industry leaders pushed forward with their efforts to apply the new technology to other vaccines starting with the flu.
Since then, almost all of the manufacturers pursuing an mRNA-based flu shot have since abandoned their projects, claiming that the mRNA technology is not developed enough yet to do so safely or effectively. Therefore, rather than pursuing an mRNA-based flu shot, they are now going back to try to further develop the mRNA technology first.
