Re: Red (# 2)

Lipids are fats or oils. Their inclusion in the formulation is as a coating to keep the mRNA stable. Even so low temperature storage is needed for stability.

As to the specific chemicals, this is complicated chemistry that cannot be easily explained to anyone without a background in chemistry. I'm a chemical engineer who studied a fair amount of chemistry but I am not an organic chemist and cannot tell you the what and why of all these components.

Lastly, I suggest you trust the vaccine scientists and not question the details of the chemistry.

Re: Marion (# 6)

Since you have a specific medical history with allergies and other conditions, I would recommend working with your doctor since they are familiar with your full history and could safely recommend the best vaccine to take.

Re: Roy (# 12)

In South Africa we only have Pfizer vaccine and J&J. The fact that I have so many allergies I cannot find someone to give me an answer on which vaccine I should take.

Re: Marion (# 13)

What allergies do you have if you don't mind me asking? Did you have a chance to review the ingredients and documents from reply # 1 here?

In your case, due to risk of allergic reaction, have you considered meeting with your doctor so that they can review your allergies and medical history to determine which vaccine (if any) are safe? That would probably be the best option if possible.
