With the way mRNA vaccines work, I can imagine a future where vaccines are printed just-in-time at your local pharmacy using the exact cocktail of strains relevant for your locality.

I just really hope we figure out supply chain security by then.

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "curl up and die."

@monsieuricon I had wondered about something like that and wondered if it got easier to manufacture if you knew they were going to be used immediately - could you avoid the silly low temperatures? Apparently the real art in the mRNA stuff is getting the material wrapped in the lipids etc
