What are the COVID-19 vaccines provided at Healthway Medical GP clinics?

Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine

Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine introduces a weakened version of COVID-19 virus, which triggers our immune systems to fight the virus.

 

Moderna COVID-19 vaccine

Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are mRNA vaccines, which use mRNA created in a laboratory to teach our cells how to make a protein—or even just a piece of a protein—that triggers an immune response inside our bodies. That immune response, which produces antibodies, is what protects us from getting infected if the real virus enters our bodies. (source: CDC)
