The Moderna coronavirus vaccine is the third jab to be rolled out in the UK.
It will be administered to people in Wales from Wednesday.
It follows the rollout of the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines, which began in December and January respectively.
Here’s what we know about the Moderna vaccine.
- How effective is it against coronavirus?
The phase three results suggested vaccine efficacy against the disease was 94.1%, and vaccine efficacy against severe Covid-19 was 100%.
More than 30,000 people in the US took part in the trial, from a wide range of age groups and ethnic backgrounds.
Two doses were given 28 days apart so researchers could evaluate safety and any reaction to the vaccine.
The analysis was based on 196 cases, of which 185 cases of Covid-19 were observed in the placebo group versus 11 cases observed in the active vaccine group.
Moderna also released data relating to severe cases.
All 30 severe cases occurred in the placebo group and none in the group which had received the vaccine, known as mRNA-1273.

  • Only 0.69 percent of Africa taken the jab, only 3.21% Asia, only 6.19% Russians, only 16.36% of European Union. What do they know about these vaccines that the dumbed down British and Americans don't?

  • Here in the US, I at 98 had the Moderna in early January. Slight headache and sore arm after the second . our two 60 year old family members had the measles shot ahead of their moderna shots. Second shots at local Publix last week . Slight headaches and sore arms were also the only results. God bless all who have worked to win this race and to deliver the vaccines within one year! Publix, by the way, is an employee-owned company with more tgzn 800 stores.

  • The Truth about viruses Viruses are a product of the Earths ecological cycles. They regulate the planets ecosystems and evolve life forms. The Earth also produces Humans. Human populations are also regulated by the planet in order to maintain our ecosystems. Vaccines are not naturally occurring they don’t adapt and change like our bodies immune system and some people only care about getting rich.

  • This is not a world health emergency, this is a war between the rich. We are just poor guinea pigs reduced to slavery. Bad world, bad people.

  • I'M ORGANIC. You can't ever say that now w the GMO filled DNA experimental MRNA non FDA approved inoculation THAT didn't protect 246 Michigan residents from getting covid. I can't believe how naive people are. You're going with a false narrative, isn't that a conspiracy theorist? FYI 500,000 every year in USA. Where are the masks and all the uproar? Oh yeah we have immune systems😉😊

  • Incidentally, you are still contagious after vaccination as soon as you contract the virus. The only difference after vaccination is that you yourself have no symptoms. That is also one of the major drawbacks of vaccination. Hundreds of thousands of vaccinated people walk around who, because they themselves do not experience any symptoms of disease, do not know that they are sick and infect others after vaccination. So they just go to work, to visit, to festivals and so on. Such a Vaccination Passport and CoronaCheck app are therefore demonstrably counterproductive. Hordes of people who do not know themselves that they are contagious and who, according to their App, can go anywhere. As a result, you have let in a concentrated group that will infect the other partygoers who have been vaccinated but not yet infected. As a result, there are even more vaccinated, infectious people who do not know themselves that they are infected because they themselves do not experience any symptoms of disease.

  • Everyone seems to have forgotten that it is herd immunity-slowing measures themselves that keep the virus going. As long as you continue to enforce group immunity delaying measures, a virus can never peak. As a result, a virus remains harmful over time. As a result, more opportunity to reach people with underlying suffering. This gives more opportunity to mutate. As a result, more infections. As a result, more unnecessary deaths. And so on. Now they are trying to achieve the same group immunity by vaccinating like mad. While you also achieve the same group immunity Free and Faster by immediately removing all group immunity delaying measures. The government and their media have gone completely crazy and arguably have no idea how to get a virus harmless. The only solution is to immediately remove all group immunity delaying measures. Then you are now completely rid of the effects of the virus in three weeks. No vaccination can compete with that. And since the stock of people with underlying suffering has been reasonably exhausted for the time being, you will no longer get an insurmountable IC peak. So please remove all those group immunity delaying measures very quickly!
