Different ends in the research additionally confirmed the Moderna vaccine to be much more efficient than the Pfizer/BioNTech one, with recipients of Moderna solely 0.42 as seemingly as Pfizer/BioNTech recipients to get extreme an infection signs.

This might probably be because of the greater mRNA content material inside the Moderna vaccine, together with the longer intervals between jabs, the research stated.
