PLEASE NOTE: It is not my intent to influence your decision on taking any vaccine. This is a personal health decision. Only YOU know what approach is best for YOU.
To satisfy my curiosity - I looked up the ingredients of the COVID vaccines being released. Both Pfizer and Moderna use mRNA - derived from DNA. Not your DNA and not my DNA. With a little research I discovered that the DNA used in all vaccines today are from two fetuses from elective abortions in the 1960's.
Then I wondered if the DNA from fetal cells would somehow alter my own DNA.
So I looked a little more and came across an article that clarifies the use of this particular DNA.
This is what I found:
Stability of DNA - Because DNA is not stable when exposed to certain chemicals, much of it is destroyed in the process of making the vaccine. Therefore, the amount of human DNA in the final vaccine preparation is minimal (trillionths of a gram) and highly fragmented. Because the DNA is fragmented, it cannot possibly create a whole protein that could be harmful. (reference below)
Okay I feel a little better. The next question was: Whose DNA was used to make these vaccines to begin with.
This is what I found:
The fetal embryo fibroblast cells used to grow vaccine viruses were first obtained from elective termination of two pregnancies in the early 1960s. These same embryonic cells obtained from the early 1960s have continued to grow in the laboratory and are used to make vaccines today. No further sources of fetal cells are needed to make these vaccines. (reference below)
Well, it's good to know that they don't continue using aborted fetuses in order to obtain the DNA they need in today's vaccines.
Just so you know, incase you are considering the vaccine and have any types of allergies or sensitivities here is the list of ingredients:
WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN THE PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE?
The Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine includes the following ingredients: mRNA, lipids ((4-hydroxybutyl)azanediyl)bis(hexane-6,1-diyl)bis(2-hexyldecanoate), 2 [(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide, 1,2-Distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine, and cholesterol), potassium chloride, monobasic potassium phosphate, sodium chloride, dibasic sodium phosphate dihydrate, and sucrose.
The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine contains the following ingredients: messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA), lipids (SM-102, polyethylene glycol [PEG] 2000 dimyristoyl glycerol [DMG], cholesterol, and 1,2-distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine [DSPC]), tromethamine, tromethamine hydrochloride, acetic acid, sodium acetate, and sucrose.
Side note: All vaccines today, not just the COVID vaccines, use the DNA from those original aborted fetuses.
