# Stats on Vaccines and Vaxed

#### From this twitter post asking the question: "how much spike protein is being made by the body of a COVID vaccine injected person" re. the May 15, 2021.  mRNA-lipid nanoparticle COVID-19 vaccines: Structure and stability

1/ start by estimating how much spike protein is being created by the mRNA vaccines

2/We know there is 30 microgram for Pfizer
3/Molecular weight is estimated at > 1.25 x10^6 gm/mole. (~330 gm per mole of nucleotide)

This comes out to
30 x 10^-6 grams/
1.25 x 10^6 gm/mole

=24 x 10^-12 moles

6 x 10^23 molecules/mole x 24 x 10^-12 moles =14.4x 10^12 molecules mRNA (14.4trillion)
4/14.4 trillion spike protein if 1 mRNA produces 1 spike protein

A more reasonable number is 1000 spike per mRNA

X1000 14,400 trillion spikes

5/So basically 30 micrograms of mRNA will theoretically produce about 14,400 trillion individual spike proteins (if 100% efficient)

6/Now we ask this. How many cells are transfected by the vaccines. In other words, how many mRNA molecules are in each LNP
7/Since we can estimate how many mRNA molecules there are (14.4 trillion for Pfizer), we must estimate how many LNP’s
8/First we must estimate the size of LNP

“Together with the mRNA, these components form particles of about 60–100 nm in size by using a rapid mixing production technique (Evers et al., 2018).”

9/So lets call it 80 nm and assume a spherical shape.
10/So LNP particles of 80 nm have a total weight of about 0.5 mg. Lipids are typically less dense than water but using the density of water we may estimate the volume of 0.5 mg as 5 x 10^17 cubic nm

Fig. 3 is surprising because 52% of the already vaxed parents plan to immediately vax or have already vaxed their children;  8% of those who haven't yet vaxed themselves (because they are waiting to see) yet, plan to immediately vax their children and 2% of parents who will not get the vaccine unless required or would never get it themselves say they will immediately vax their children.
