About the Moderna Coronavirus Vaccine
Moderna has produced an mRNA vaccine intended to prevent the development of COVID-19 in the population. It is the second vaccine candidate that the US Food and Drug Administration authorized for use. The FDA granted Moderna an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for its mRNA vaccine on December 18, 2020.
Moderna’s clinical trials indicated that the vaccine is 94.1% effective at preventing COVID-19 illness in those who received both doses. The Moderna mRNA-1273 vaccine requires two doses, taken one month (28 days) apart. According to the Centers for Disease Control and prevention, the shots are administered in the upper arm muscle, where post-injection swelling and pain may occur.
Other side effects could include fever, chills, headache, and tiredness that may affect your ability to perform daily tasks. According to the CDC, these are signs that your body is reacting to the vaccine as intended.
