Moderna says its jab can remain in fridge for 3 months

Moderna Inc. revealed on Thursday that the latest data showed the company's COVID-19 vaccine can be stored at regular fridge temperatures for up to three months without any negative effects.

Moderna's jab is currently stored at temperatures between 36 and 46 degrees Fahrenheit (2-8 degrees Celsius) according to the guidance coming from the Food and Drug Administration. However, the newest data could lead to the easier distribution of the jab if the FDA decides to authorize the change regarding its storage.

The statement comes after Moderna announced earlier today it has increased the minimum production target for its COVID-19 vaccine to 800 million doses in 2021.
