Admitting that Corbett, Graham, Kariko and Weissman are not alone in their incredible vaccine efforts, TIME’s writes that “scientists around the world have produced COVID-19 vaccines using a variety of platforms and technologies.”

Corbett, Graham, Kariko and Weissman were able to create a breakthrough with the virus by “introducing an innovative and highly effective vaccine platform, based on mRNA, that will impact our health and well-being far beyond this pandemic.”

This breakthrough and the “construction of these COVID-19 vaccines” have ultimately provided the world with “a list of near-infinite possibilities.”

The outlet also added that thanks to these scientists, humanity has the “ultimate prize —a weapon to fight the pandemic.”

Though it is “now up to humanity to return the favor.”

Announcing the news on Twitter, Time’s wrote the scientists “achieved a breakthrough of singular importance.”
