COVID jab highly effective against new variants - Moderna

Moderna Inc. stated on Wednesday that a new analysis showed that the company's coronavirus vaccine remained "highly effective" against new COVID-19 variants.

According to the data from Kaiser Permanente, Moderna's jab showed 87% effectiveness against infections and 96% against hospitalizations.

"The increased risk of breakthrough infections in COVE study participants who were vaccinated last year compared to more recently illustrates the impact of waning immunity and supports the need for a booster to maintain high levels of protection," CEO Stephane Bancel said.
