Covid Vaccine, How does the Covid Vaccine work, how to determine which vaccine is best for you
Hello, I’m Dr. Trish Murray – physician, best-selling author, and the Health Catalyst Speaker. You found this talk most likely because you’ve been searching to try and understand better how the COVID-19 vaccines work. That’s exactly what I’m going to cover here. So, let’s get going.

First of all, to understand the mechanism of how the vaccines work we have to understand what is a virus? How would you attack it? Viruses are microscopic parasites, generally much smaller than bacteria. Viruses are made up of a small collection of genetic code, could be DNA or RNA, and then that genetic code is surrounded by a protein coat. Viruses cannot replicate alone out in the environment. They must infect cells. They must infect an animal or human and get into your cells. Then they hijack the host cells’ machinery, basically your genetics, in order to replicate. Typically, they then kill the host cell in the process of replication and cause damage to the host organs.
Researchers have estimated that viruses outnumber bacteria by more than ten to one. Viruses cannot be killed by antibiotics. That’s why we’ve been in a pandemic for the last year because the antibiotics are of no use against the virus. Only antiviral medications…but we don’t have any specific antiviral medications for COVID-19. Then in order to protect or get your immune system to be able to protect you, vaccines can eliminate or reduce the severity of viral disease.
Now, let’s look at the definition of a vaccine. A vaccine is a product that stimulates your immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, therefore protecting you or any person from that disease.
Now, again, with what we just said if your immune system is ultimately what’s going to protect you, then you need to have some basic understanding of how the immune system works. The immune system is a very complex system, but I’m going to take a few moments here and give you the basics so that you have a basic understanding.
First of all, you’ve got to understand that your immune system is a defense system. It is your military with different branches. Just like in our American military we have the Navy, the Army, the Air Force, the Marines, there are different branches to your defense systems of your body in your immune system. Those branches in your immune system are called the innate immune system, the adaptive immune system, and the adaptive immune system again can have different branches such as the Th1 pathway and the Th2 pathway. I’m not going to go into huge complex detail about all of these different branches. Again, I’m giving you the basics. Later I’m going to give you an offer of my first book for free, in which I talk a lot more about the immune system and how it works.
Let’s talk about the different branches. The innate immune system is really your ground forces. It’s your army, the men and women on the ground, the ground forces that are the first line of defense against any invader. Your innate immune system is the first thing to attack any virus or any bacteria or any foreign invader of your body.
