What is the difference between the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines?

Both vaccines are messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines. They both use lipid molecules to move the vaccine into the cell, but each company uses different lipids. In part due to the lipid ingredient choice, Pfizer’s vaccine requires a colder temperature for storage.
