SECOND Covid vaccine thought to be 94% effective, but the UK hasn’t ordered any
A coronavirus vaccine developed by Moderna has proven to be 94% effective, after a trial of over 30,000 people showed that only 5 participants developed Covid, all with mild symptoms, compared with 90 people given the placebo who became ill.
Unfortunately, the UK hasn’t pre-ordered any of the US Moderna vaccine, and officials are now in talks to pre-order 40million of the jabs.
Stéphane Bancel, Chief Executive Officer of Moderna, said: “This is a pivotal moment in the development of our Covid-19 vaccine candidate.
“This positive interim analysis from our Phase 3 study has given us the first clinical validation that our vaccine can prevent Covid-19 disease, including severe disease.”
