12th January 2021: COVID-19 vaccine likely to provide immunity for at least a year, says Moderna.
Baaghi TV: Immunity against COVID-19 from Moderna Inc’s vaccine should last at least a year, the company said on Monday at the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference.
The company said that the messenger RNA (mRNA) technology it used was well suited to locate a vaccine based on the new variant of the coronavirus which has emerged in few countries.
Earlier, in December, Moderna said it would run tests to confirm the vaccine’s activity against any strain.
On Monday, the company said it expects to deliver between 600 million to 1 billion doses of its vaccine in 2021 and forecast vaccine-related sales of $11.7 billion for the year, based on advance purchase agreements signed with governments.
Moderna’s Chief Executive Officer Stéphane Bancel said.“The team feels very comfortable with the track record we have now, that we are on track to deliver at least 600 million doses.”
