The JNJ vaccine works very similarly to an mRNA vaccine. Don't be fooled into thinking it's traditional.

It’s old tech using a viral vector, pretty sure since the 70s. Not arguing for or against vaccines, but it is no where close to the shitshow mRNAs can cause.

I'm pretty sure there weren't any viral vector vaccines approved for human use until recent times, though you can correct me on that if I'm wrong. Im not saying the viral vector technology didn't exist or that it wasn't used in other settings. The mRNA technology is completely new. They both work by transporting genetic material (DNA or RNA) to your cells so you can generate the spike protein.

Traditional vaccines are usually live-attenuated or inactive.
