Covid 19 Vaccine

Vaccine against Covid 19. I wanted to reproduce the package leaflet published by AIFA in full and without any judgment. This is because a few days ago I was contacted by a teacher who was very confused by various information received and asked for explanations. He claimed that the vaccine below was not messenger RNA. This is why I have highlighted a word for you: codify. In the following article, which represents the continuation and conclusion of this, I report the term codify for both the Treccani encyclopedia and Wikipedia. And I will give you a brief explanation of the normal DNA – RNA – Protein mechanism … as always, everyone will reason, understand and make their own thoughts. Thank you.
