The path to a corona vaccine has long been talked about and the time has finally come. First came Pfizer’s and BioNTech’s vaccine getting approval in the U.S. but now we got a second, Moderna’s vaccine has just been approved by the FDA.
The FDA has authorized the shot among adults which is a remarkable accomplishment to have solidified approval under 1-years time. This is now the second out of the 6 vaccine candidates identified by Operation Warp Speed to be available to the public.
Moderna’s vaccine came out as being 94.1% effective at preventing symptomatic cases of the coronavirus and even prevented the most severe infections, according to its clinical trial results. On the other hand, Pfizer’s vaccine was 95% effective in the same categories.
The U.S. has already committed just under $1 billion to develop and make the Moderna vaccine available to the public but with heavy coronavirus conspiracies and opinions surrounding the idea of the vaccine, the question remains: Will you be getting vaccinated?
