Indeed, Pfizer covid vaccines are about 95 percent effective. It has a partnership with BioNTech for emergency use only. The active ingredient is messenger RNA that carries instructions for making the virus’s spike protein. This protein is the actual entrance for cells. The mRNA is synthetic, not aberrated from actual viruses. It is injected then. The spike protein is known as foreign by the immune system, which mounts an attack against it. In the meantime, the antibiotic cells will be activated.

So coming to the side effects section, yes they kinda have mild aftermath depending on the immunity. SO far in 2020, there was no serious dismay. Well, in 2021, the table turned.
