Moderna's vaccine efficacy against Omicron will be known in few weeks

Moderna Inc.'s CEO Stephane Bancel said on Monday that it will take two to six weeks for data to show whether their coronavirus vaccine is effective against the Omicron variant.

Furthermore, Bancel noted that it could take months before Omicron-specific vaccines can be manufactured and shipped out, but was optimistic about the prospects of containing the virus due to the measures undertaken by countries.

Lastly, Bancel commented on the dangers of the newly discovered strain, calling it "highly infectious," as the company advanced research into a booster candidate targeting the variant.
