Moderna's Covid vaccine shows promise of protecting older adults from infection

Date: 03 October 2020 Tags: Biotechnology
  • US-based biotech company Moderna's Covid-19 vaccine candidate has shown signs of working in older adults, new results from an early stage trial have revealed.
  • This study evaluated a two-dose vaccination schedule of Moderna's Covid-19 vaccine candidate mRNA-1273 given 28 days apart in 40 healthy adult participants across two dose levels -- 25 and 100 microgramin two age cohorts --ages 56-70 and ages 71+.
  • These results, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, showed that both the 25 microgram and 100 microgram dose levels were generally well-tolerated in both age cohorts, with no serious adverse events reported one month after the second dose.
