We have had details of the Pfizer BioNtech RNA vaccine and now we have heard about the Moderna Virus RNA vaccine. They are both very similar
There were 44,000 people vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine and 94 people in the trial showed symptoms in the Moderna trial 30,000 people were injected and 95 people got infected.
The major side effect is injection site reactions.
There was no major serious side effects according to the manufactureres
Watch the video to explain the biology of these vaccines. (Up to 10.30min)
I assume this type of vaccine would be seen as suitable for people with MS
There are 5 million doses planned for UK and 30-40million doses of the Pfizer vaccine planned for the UK. Both are two dose studies
Coming up the rear is the Collonial College 🙂 RNA vaccine being developed in the UK. I suspect the pandemic may be over by the time this arrives, but depends on who they partner with, but it may give a UK source of this type of agent.
