(E) Today, Moderna announced the results of its phase 3 study, and gave some additional details about its vaccine.
Moderna vaccine is slightly more efficient than the one from BioNTech, 94% vs 90%, can be stored between 2 and 8 degrees Celsius versus BioNTech below -70 degrees Celsius.
By the end of the year, Moderna expects to have approximately 20 million doses of its vaccine ready to ship in the U.S., and to manufacture 500 million to 1 billion doses globally in 2021.
Pfizer and BioNTech expect to manufacture up to 100 million doses by the end of 2020, and potentially more than 1.3 billion doses by the end of 2021.
