Moderna says its COVID-19 vaccine has a 96% efficacy rate in teens who have received one shot
Moderna Inc. said Thursday that initial data from the study evaluating its COVID-19 vaccine in teens between the ages of 12 and 17 years old showed an efficacy rate of 96%, with no serious safety concerns. The Phase 2/3 clinical trial is testing the vaccine in 3,235 teens who have received at least one shot in the two-dose regimen and have not previously been infected with SARS-CoV-2. "Because the incidence rate of COVID-19 is lower in adolescents, the case definition is less stringent ... resulting in vaccine efficacy against milder disease," Moderna said in its earnings release. Pfizer Inc. is expected to have its emergency authorization for its COVID-19 vaccine expanded sometime in the next week to include 12 to 15 year olds. Data from Pfizer's study showed an efficacy rate of 100% in 2,260 teens who have had or not had COVID-19. Moderna's stock is up 55.8% for the year, while the S&P 500 has gained 10.9%.
