Moderna's interim analysis was based on 95 infections among trial participants who received either a placebo or the vaccine. Of those, only five infections occurred in those who received the vaccine, which is administered in two shots 28 days apart.

A key advantage of Moderna's vaccine is that it does not need ultra-cold storage like Pfizer's, making it easier to distribute. Moderna expects it to be stable at standard refrigerator temperatures of 2 to 8 degrees Celsius (36 to 48°F) for 30 days and it can be stored for up to 6 months at -20 degrees Celsius.

Carbon,  It was tested on about 30,000 people. The results are from when the first 95 of those contracted covid-19.  This is similar to how Pfizer's reported their results.

I'm wondering how many people do they test/give a potential vaccine to before releasing it to the rest of the World......

30k seems a  low number.......

Just being sceptical.....i guess....

Only 15k received the vaccine, the other 15k received a placebo

90 new infections in the placebo side of the study, 5 in the vaccine side. 11 severe illnesses in the placebo side, none in the vaccine side.

No serious adverse events in placebo or vaccine but limited follow up data. This is in their press release.

You have to ask where all this happened,

I mean if they gave 15k people in say here in Perth WA,where there's no covid,the vaccine, 

and 15k people in say Wisconsin the placebo where there major problems, the test results would be way out......

I know that's not a fair comparison.....

Just playing devils advocate.....

Haven't bought shares yet!!!!!!(cynical snigger)

Was talking to a Walmart pharmacist today. Her understanding is that there is will be a required isolation period after receiving the vaccine (either one). She said she heard it was a few days after getting the jab.

Walmart's in the US will be giving the vaccine (she said) when it becomes available (along with other pharmacies)
