Project Description

This mock-up cover for the academic journal, Science, visualizes the three current vaccine options available in the US for SARS-CoV-2 immunization. Potential readers can immediately recognize the two double-dose vaccines at the top (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna), and the solo syringe at the bottom (J&J/Janssen) of the cover. A flowing strand of mRNA behind the double-dose vaccines, and DNA behind the single viral vector vaccine hint at the mechanism of action behind each vaccine type. Altogether, these vaccine syringes are targeting the SARS-CoV-2 virions in the center of the composition, building an overall shape of an antibody ‘“ representing the immunity these vaccines will provide to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
