Admission of mistake in Oxford vaccine dose raises doubts over reliability

The vaccine is an injection of RNA, not something like a virus that alters our DNA to produce this RNA.

This is no different than injection of medicine, only the body can make use of the RNA to make antibodies instead of it being a chemical to kill the infection directly.

People have this assumption that if you mention DNA or RNA, then obviously this means they're changing our very genetic code. If they did that, chances of you dying is pretty high as your body would begin rejecting itself if you altered our DNA.

Since the human body only reads RNA for instructions, which RNA strands are usually made from parts of our DNA, adding in RNA doesn't do anything other than may trick our body into producing those proteins.
