BREAKING NEWS: Moderna’s vaccine has been cleared by US regulators after being deemed safe and 94 per cent effective, one day after the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine began being administered across the country.
After the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) published the positive findings on Tuesday, December 15, it now just needs to be approved by the FDA’s Vaccine Panel on Thursday, December 17, before it can become the second coronavirus vaccine allowed in the US.
