Anyone else tired of the computer metaphors surrounding the jab? Or perhaps it isn’t really a metaphor at all.
India last month said that it had created the world’s first DNA vaccine, ZyCoV-D. While standard vaccines use actual ‘hardware’ protein, DNA vaccines use the ‘software’ blueprint of the virus.
India last month began boasting that it has created – and its regulatory body approved – the world’s first DNA vaccine, ZyCoV-D.
The vaccine, developed by a company called Zydus Cadila, expects to have it available for use as early as next month, giving hope to a country that has suffered more than 447,000 deaths at the hand of the virus.
