Moderna to Apply for EUA for Covid-19 Vaccine

Moderna has applied for clearance for their Covid-19 vaccine for use in the United States and in Europe today.  This comes shortly after the study showing the vaccine being very effective at preventing Covid-19 without safety issues.

As we mentioned in a previous blog, the effective rate of the Moderna Vaccine is about 94%.  Something important to note is that all 30 severe cases of the virus came from participants that received a placebo, indicating a 100% efficacy against severe cases.

These results put Moderna on the path to having one of the first Covid-19 vaccines to be cleared for use in the United States.  The vaccine manufacturer said they plan to apply for the Emergency Use Authorization today however with a relatively small sample size, the application and study results will likely be highly scrutinized and analyzed.

Abigail Capobianco, a spokeswoman for the FDA, said, “We respectfully decline to comment at this time” regarding a timeline for the ruling. Stephane Bancel, Moderna’s chief executive officer said,” We have been working nonstop in the last few weeks.  We are ready today to ship the vaccine.  We have millions of doses ready, we have more and more every couple days.”
