The Weekly Rewind (December 20 - December 26)
THE WOODLANDS, TX - The news never stops in and around The Woodlands. Here are some of the most read stories from last week, December 20 - December 26.
Frontline employees at Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital received the recently approved COVID-19 vaccine by Pfizer and BioNTech, December 16. The vaccine is a lipid nanoparticle, or, in layman's terms, a small particle of fat. Residing inside of that nanoparticle is messenger RNA (ribonucleic acid). Cells use messenger RNA (mRNA) to make proteins; when injected into a person’s body, the mRNA merges with a cell and tells it to create a particular protein. In this case, it creates the spike protein on the surface of COVID, and since this is a foreign protein, the body subsequently produces antibodies that result in an immense immune response.
