The accepted definition of a vaccine has until now been clearly understood: “A vaccine protects the patient from a specific disease and usually reduces or eliminates the transmission of the disease.”  The main jabs being used to combat Covid-19 are not, therefore, by this definition, vaccines but are genetic mRNA medicines that work in a different way. They stimulate the immune system to produce specific antibodies that may reduce the intensity of the infection but the patient may still be infected and they may continue to be potential transmitters of the disease. Read more on how these medicines are developed: HERE  Previously, similar mRNA medications have been on trial for the treatment of cancers.

They are still in the developmental stage and have not had the lengthy (2 -5 years) safety evaluation of traditional vaccines.
