Is a genetic vaccine simply another word for a genetic engineering/genetic recombination? It is part of a question on my microbio. homework but we have never talked about the exact phrase "genetic vaccine" so im a little confused as to what exactly it is referring to. Thanks for the help!

Genetic vaccine are also called DNA vaccine.

As far as the vaccine goes, it's all clinical or in animal trials. There is no commercial vaccine available.

I think there's some RNA vaccines in clinical trials, it's probably why the term Genetic vaccine are now name so. I learned all about DNA vaccine as an undergrad but RNA never came up.
