The DNA coronavirus vaccine that is being developed at Karolinska Institutet will be given together with a small electric shock in the arm, which will ensure that the DNA-based vaccine reaches its destination.

The DNA vaccine involves injecting at the same time as you get a small electric shock in the area where you were vaccinated, and this causes the vaccine to enter our cells, says Ali Mirazimi.

It is called electroporation when you take some electricity to help the vaccine’s DNA particles get into our cells. The coronavirus vaccine that is currently being developed at Karolinska Institutet is a DNA vaccine, which, unlike the RNA vaccine, must enter the cell nucleus in order to function. However, it is not a question of the vaccine being able to become part of our own DNA, as it lacks certain elements required for something like this to happen.
