Moderna boss says COVID-19 vaccine not proven to stop spread of virus

Moderna’s coro­n­avirus vac­cine may not get life back to nor­mal right away because it hasn’t yet been proven to pre­vent the dead­ly bug from spread­ing, the company’s top doc­tor says.

Research has shown that the biotech firm’s shot is effec­tive at pre­vent­ing peo­ple from get­ting sick with COVID-19, but there’s no hard evi­dence that it stops them from car­ry­ing the virus “tran­sient­ly” and poten­tial­ly infect­ing oth­ers who haven’t been vac­ci­nat­ed, accord­ing to Dr. Tal Zaks, Moderna’s chief med­ical officer.

“I think we need to be care­ful, as we get vac­ci­nat­ed, not to over-inter­pret the results,” Zaks told Axios in a TV inter­view released Mon­day. “When we start the deploy­ment of this vac­cine, we will not have suf­fi­cient con­crete data to prove that this vac­cine reduces transmission.”


Big Tech is at war with you! They don't want you to see the truth.
