The official ingredients - with their functions:

???????????? ????????????????????
- nucleoside-modified messenger RNA (modRNA) encoding the viral spike glycoprotein (S) of SARS-CoV-2

RNA is a template to produce a specific protein.
In the vaccine, this message tells our cells to produce the viral protein that will trigger the immune response to the virus.

????????????
- (4-hydroxybutyl)azanediyl)bis(hexane-6,1-diyl)bis (ALC-3015)
- (2- hexyldecanoate),2-[(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide (ALC-0159)
- 1,2-distearoyl-snglycero-3-phosphocholine (DPSC)
- Cholesterol

These are fancy words for 4 different fatty molecules. These assemble into capsules that contain the RNA. These fats aid in delivery and protection of the RNA.

??????????
- potassium chloride
- monobasic potassium phosphate
- sodium chloride
- basic sodium phosphate dihydrate

Again, fancy words for 4 salts. This formula is actually phosphate-buffered saline (PBS), a common buffer. This normalizes the pH of the vaccine.

??????????
- sucrose

Just sugar! It is a cryoprotectant to ensure the lipids don't get too sticky in ultra-cold storage.
