mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines: An Incredible Feat of Genomic Technology
J Cono et al, CDC Blog post, March 5, 2021

mRNA vaccines can be more quickly generated in the laboratory using the genetic sequences for selected pathogen proteins. The mRNA vaccine manufacturing process is more easily scaled up to produce large volumes of vaccine. And mRNA technology is more quickly adaptable should there ever be a need to reformulate a vaccine against virus variants that could develop.

An Effective New Tool in the Toolbox
CDC COVID-19 Weekly Review, March 5, 2021

Vaccinations, wearing a well-fitted mask, and taking other precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 can help end the pandemic. We need to use all tools in the toolbox, accelerate vaccination and ensure vaccines are distributed equitably, and learn from our initial successes.

L-6 blockade for COVID-19: a global scientific call to arms
S Murthy et al, Lancet Microbe, March 5, 2021

Since early in the pandemic, modulating the immune response beyond steroids has been the source of a great deal of scientific attention, with the role of repurposed IL-6-blocking agents reported in a number of observational studies and randomized controlled trials.

Possible Side Effects After Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine
CDC, March 5, 2021

In most cases, discomfort from pain or fever is a normal sign that your body is building protection. Contact your doctor or healthcare provider: If the redness or tenderness where you got the shot gets worse after 24 hours If your side effects are worrying you or do not seem to be going away after a few days.

About COVID-19 GPH

COVID-19 GPH is an online, continuously updated, searchable database of published scientific literature, CDC and NIH resources, and other materials that captures emerging discoveries and applications of genomics, molecular and other precision medicine and precision public health tools in the investigation and control of COVID-19. Contents include PubMed records via an automated pubmed search algorithm, preprint records from NIH iCite, the relevant information from many media sources picked by experts, and linkages to contents from our curated PHGKB databases.

Genomics Precision Health (GPH): The use of pathogen and human genomics and advanced molecular detection methods in discovery, clinical and public health investigations involving COVID-19.
Non Genomics Precision Health (non-GPH): The use of big data, data science and machine learning methods (not involving genomics) in discovery, clinical and public health investigations involving COVID-19
