A refresher on how the #AstraZeneca #vaccine works to combat #COVID19 !! 💉
Infographic on how #AstraZeneca #vaccine works for countering #COVID19 ..
Another comprehensive description of how #AstraZeneca #vaccine works .. to fight #COVID19 ..
Starts with the spike protein DNA carried by Adenovirus ChAdOx1 or just AZD1222 .. a technology that led to the Ebola vaccine in the past..
The DNA triggers formation of mRNA which will code for spike proteins.. #AstraZeneca #vaccine
Once spike protein appears on the surface of somatic cells, they are recognized by APC, Antigen Presenting Cells .. which then triggers the T Helper Cells
B cells get involved and antibodies are produced against the spike protein.. which also attacks the spike proteins on actual #SARSCoV2 , the pathogen for #COVID19 ..
Another interesting mechanism of action is via APC, Antigen Presenting Cells which activate Killer T Cells to attack directly the spike protein on infected cells..
Not forgetting also to weigh in the risk of blood clots vs the benefits of #AstraZeneca #vaccine .. more so in the context of blood clots if one has #COVID19 ..
Yet we also need to hear out from a son who described how his dad who developed stroke from blood clot was "unbelievably unlucky" !!
Hence the "informed consent" practiced in Canada, much like now in #Malaysia with regards to the #AstraZeneca #vaccine
Now this is an interesting hypothesis put forward.. if the fears of blood clots cause #AstraZeneca #vaccine to be halted.. and the increased deaths that may follow !!
Now for a comparison of #COVID19 #vaccines .. especially ways where #AstraZeneca is better !!
Storage temperature is 1 key advantage that #AstraZeneca has, together with J&J .. between 2.2 to 7.7°C and not at sub-zero temperatures.. PLUS cheaper cost !!

#fakenewsbusting 01 .. To ALL who thought Kompleks Masyarakat Penyayang is now a Covid Hospital.. sorry to disappoint you.. Yup !! #FakeNews again.. you have only an empty hall.. #Penang 1/n
#fakenewsbusting 01 .. What you do have are relocation of operation of offices here; like Eden Handicap Centre & closing of counter services; like for Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat since 9/11/2020.. #Penang .. 2/n
#fakenewsbusting 01.. What is also real is that the Kompleks Masyarakat Penyayang is identified as a potential quarantine centre, *JIKA PERLU* !! .. That's all.. no more, and no less. 3/n
