What’s actually happening when we’re “gearing up” to do something?

In: Biology

The specifics depends on what you are “gearing up” for. It just means to get ready for some activity or thing that is going to take place.

It depends on the thing.

The newsy example if covid vaccine. To gear-up you need the things that will go into the distribution chain for the vaccine. Like the little bottles, and their lids, and the boxes they go in, … . When you have a good candidate, you might make many liters of it, and then put them in the little bottles and put the lids on and put them in the boxes, all as part of gearing up to distribute them widely. Then when you get the OK, you put all the boxes in the mail and you’re able to start giving shots really quickly.
