Moderna says its shot is effective after 6 months

Moderna Inc. revealed on Thursday a study showing that its coronavirus vaccine provides "both binding and functional antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 variants for six months after the second dose." The level of antibodies was maintained against variants of concern, including the Delta variant, according to the study published in Science.

"Along with our partners, we are committed to generating data on the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine and sharing this as available," said Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel. "These data support the durable efficacy of 93% seen with the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine through six months. We expect that these data and the growing body of real-world evidence will help inform health regulators' approaches to how and when to administer additional boosting doses."
