Moderna’s Coronavirus Vaccine in Almost 95% Effective in Early Studies

There is some amazing news this Monday morning – Moderna’s Coronavirus vaccine is almost 95% effective!

“These are obviously very exciting results,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, top infectious disease doctor, said (via CNN). “It’s just as good as it gets — 94.5% is truly outstanding.”

“It was one of the greatest moments in my life and my career. It is absolutely amazing to be able to develop this vaccine and see the ability to prevent symptomatic disease with such high efficacy,” Dr. Tal Zacks, Moderna’s chief medical officer also said.

The vaccine will begin to be distributed in December to health care workers and will be given to other high risk groups in terms of priority.

“I think that everybody else will start to get vaccinated towards the end of April,” Dr. Fauci added. “And that will go into May, June, July. It will take a couple of months to do.”

This news is similar to the news about Pfizer Inc’s COVID-19 vaccine, which has also been discovered to be extremely effective in preventing the disease.
