In order to deal with the corona virus pandemic, which is sweeping the world, two vaccines have been produced. These are the Astrazeneca vaccine and the Pfizer vaccine. These two antidotes have the same mission, but differ in some respects. Find out more about these two vaccines in this article.
The functionality of the vaccines
Composed by an independent organisation, the company Astrazeneca is one of the first to be able to market a vaccine against this pandemic that has and continues to shake the world. It is 60-70% effective. The vaccine is primarily designed to cure people over the age of 70. Astrazeneca is producing antibodies to build up resistance to the development of this virus. This means that if you get vaccinated you are spared the intrusion of this virus into your body. If you are already infected, this antivirus will act on the virus to eliminate it. Pfizer also works in the same way. It is produced in America and available in all markets, including Europe. It acts up to 76% in the body of those affected.
Their Points of Divergence
Despite their initial objective of saving humans, these two vaccines have points of divergence. These are the physical and theoretical points. Astrazeneca's vaccine is produced by the University of OXFOD in the UK. It has been authorised on the market by the High Authority for Health. The latter is derived from messenger RNA, whereas PFIZER's vaccine comes from America. It succeeds Astrazeneca 1 year after its authorisation by a health committee. Pfizer's vaccine is 70% effective. Astrazeneca's vaccine is easier to transport with a very specific storage temperature. While Pfizer is more independent in its storage management in super freezers for an average temperature of 8°.
