Moderna also took into account cases of severe COVID-19 (30 people in severe form – all from the placebo group).

Based on the data obtained, Moderna evaluates the effectiveness of its vaccine at 94.1% and believes that the drug is able to prevent the occurrence of COVID-19 in severe form. “The effectiveness was the same regardless of age, race, ethnicity and gender. Among the 196 COVID-19 patients 33 are elderly people (age 65+) and 42 people from different communities (including 29 Latinos, 6 African Americans, 4 Americans of Asian descent and 3 people of different races),” the company said.
