Moderna Says Its COVID-19 Vaccine Is 93% Effective 6 Months After Second Dose

....Moderna says its COVID-19 vaccine is 93-percent effective against the coronavirus six months after patients get the second dose.

“We are pleased that our COVID-19 vaccine is showing durable efficacy of 93% through six months, but recognize that the Delta variant is a significant new threat so we must remain vigilant.” Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said in a statement Thursday.

“The vaccines are unbelievable, so obviously when you combine all the data out to 6 months out and you still get 93 percent that’s fantastic information,” Tufts Medical Center Epidemiologist Dr. Shira Doron told WBZ-TV.

Last week, Pfizer said their COVID-19 vaccine efficacy fell to 84-percent after six months. Dr. Doron said Moderna’s new data should make people feel even better about the Pfizer vaccine.

“The fact that the Moderna, which is identical technology, numbers are higher suggests Pfizer data may actually be an underrepresentation of the true effectiveness of the vaccine,” she said.

The Cambridge-based company said tests on booster shots against variants, like the highly contagious Delta variant, have produced “robust antibody responses” so far.

Moderna also said Thursday a third booster dose of its COVID-19 vaccine will likely be necessary this fall because of the rapid spread of the Delta variant of the coronavirus........



better.............?!

Apples, oranges. The post title is misleading since the two measures are not comparable. Given that these are both mRNA vaccines that trigger the body's immune system the same way, the longterm efficacy is likely to be similar if not identical.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

better.............?!

But buried in that is that we should get boosters in the fall [www.wsj.com]

"Moderna Inc. MRNA -0.67% said Thursday it expects people who received its two-dose Covid-19 vaccine to need a booster shot in the fall to keep strong protection against newer variants of the coronavirus."
