Moderna Vaccine Looking Good

News of a new vaccine for COVID-19 was making headlines on Monday. Moderna says it’s Coronavirus Vaccine is nearly 95% effective. The Company released its early Clinical Trial Data Monday morning. Moderna plans to seek FDA authorization for the immunization after more safety data is gathered later this month. Of the 15,000 participants who received the vaccine, only 5 contracted COVID-19 and none became seriously ill. It’s the second vaccine in the U.S. to have a stunningly high success rate. Last week, Pfizer announced that early data shows it’s vaccine is more than 90% effective against the Virus. The Nation’s top Infectious Disease Expert, Doctor Anthony Fauci, says COVID-19 vaccinations could start as soon as Mid-December. It’s expected that high-risk groups like Health Care Workers, the Elderly, and people with underlying medical conditions would get the vaccine first. It could be available to everyone else by Spring.
