Moderna COVID-19 vaccine shows 'robust' response in children aged 6-11


Moderna reports 'robust' response to Covid vaccine in children aged 6-11

Immunity generated by the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine lasts for at least six months, and there is no indicator that vaccinated people will need a booster shot, according to a study published in September.

The research, published in the journal Science, noted that this time point of six months is critical because that is when true immune memory has formed.

Moderna's vaccine for Covid-19 is significantly more effective against the Delta variant of the SARS-CoV2 virus than Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson, suggests a new study.

The study, published in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, suggests that Moderna was 95 per cent effective at preventing hospitalisation among adults ages 18 and older.
