Mass COVID-19 vaccination campaigns are currently underway across the globe and Comirnaty (BNT162b2) is among the COVID-19 vaccines being deployed in those national campaigns.4-6 Unlike other conventional vaccines, Comirnaty employs a novel genetic technology known as mRNA, which takes advantage of the process that host cells use in order to make proteins to trigger an immune response and subsequently contributes protection against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.2 Although Comirnaty is among the first mRNA vaccines being authorised for human use, the technology is actually not entirely new as there was previous clinical trial of cancer vaccine using the same mRNA technology and safety had been demonstrated in the trial.7
