mRNA vaccines against COVID-19 are being used worldwide. Soon, you may queue to have one injected into your body.  Here’re the basics of how mRNA vaccines will work, from the University of Cambridge: https://www.phgfoundation.org/briefing/rna-vaccines

An interesting editorial in the New York Times by a German journalist explores how Germany is confronting xenophobia again because their leading mRNA vaccine was developed by two scientists of Turkish heritage: A Turkish-German Couple May Save Us From the Virus. So Why Is Germany Uneasy?

A well-told history of how research on mRNA ebbed and flowed over the past thirty years: The story of mRNA: How a once-dismissed idea became a leading technology in the Covid vaccine race The hero of this story, coincidentally or not, is a Hungarian ex-pat working in the US, who persisted through years of academic skepticism and immigration hurdles.

There are other vaccines under development and a great deal of discussion about how to distribute and administer them once approved.

Meanwhile, you may want to get the MMR vaccine. I did, after discussing it with my internist and immunologist. Details here: How the Measles Vaccine May Help Protect Against COVID-19 Costco has it on hand, insurance covered the cost, and I had no ill effects.

Don’t worry about becoming a GMO, at least not from an mRNA vaccine.

“Alterations of DNA in germline cells can be passed on to the next generation, but there’s no evidence that the mRNA in vaccines like the Moderna or Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines can permanently alter germline DNA – because these vaccines can’t alter any DNA in cells permanently”
No, the Moderna and Pfizer RNA vaccines for COVID-19 will not “permanently alter your DNA”
