The world’s eyes have been trained on the few companies producing vaccines for coronavirus, including successful companies like Pfizer and Moderna, as well as ones that struggled a little longer with public opinion like Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca.

The jabs have begun spreading through the world, faster in some places than others, and besides the conspiracy theories that companies are trying to put chips in humans, or the repeatedly disproved theories that vaccines cause autism, people are still concerned about the speed with which these new vaccines were created. But much of the fear around them comes from not fully understanding how they work. And that goes for vaccines of all sorts!
