Is there a difference between mRNA and inactivated vaccines?

An important piece of information first: all Covid-19 vaccines which have been approved to date meet the standard criteria for inactivated vaccines. Why? Because they do not contain any reproducible components. This is also true of mRNA vaccines.

The special aspect of mRNA vaccines is that they include a quasi-construction manual. It enables the body to produce the antibodies which identify and fight the Corona virus, thus preventing it spreading in the body and helping us to remain healthy and/or free of symptoms.
