Comparative review of the technological and biochemical basis behind four different COVID-19 vaccines produced in the United States and Europe.
The advent of COVID-19 arising from SARS-CoV-2 has interrupted the world to unbelievable levels. To establish a common immunity and subsequently safeguard humanity, several laboratories across the world have developed a couple of vaccine formulations with the sole intention of fighting COVID-19, a ravaging respiratory tract infection that has interrupted the usual norms worldwide. The vaccines considered, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca, Modern, and Pfizer, qualitatively depict diverse ways of biochemically shielding the body, consequently different efficacy. This paper provides a comprehensive comparative review of existing information on the biochemical features and technology of the four COVID-19 vaccines. Explicitly, little scientific documentation to date has carried out a detailed review of the available COVID-19 vaccines simultaneously, hence offering a comparative analysis. The article is a summary of valuable information regarding the biochemical composition and technology behind the above-discussed vaccines, hence shedding more light on the safety and efficacy parameters on each. However, it is not meant to be a complete review of the subject matter.Author(s): Evance Okoyo*
