Moderna coronavirus vaccine is 94.5% effective, early results suggest

Moderna’s experimental coronavirus vaccine is 94.5% effective in protecting against infection with the coronavirus, according to early data released by the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based company Monday (Nov. 16). 

This comes a week after Pfizer’s announcement that its vaccine is more than 90% effective, Live Science previously reported.Though the clinical trials from both companies are still in progress and final, peer-reviewed data hasn’t yet been published, these results provide some hope as the U.S. faces a record-breaking surge of coronavirus cases.
