Israel, Moderna Sign Deal for 6 million COVID Vaccine Doses
Israel has signed an expanded supply agreement with Moderna to receive an additional four million doses of the company’s messenger RNA (mRNA) coronavirus vaccine candidate, the Health Ministry and the Prime Minister’s Office said on Friday, bringing the total secured doses of mRNA-1273 to six million.
Last week, Moderna announced that it had applied for US and European emergency authorization of its COVID-19 vaccine based on results of a late-stage study showing that it was 94.1% effective, with no serious safety concerns. The company also reported a 100% success rate in preventing severe cases.
In addition, Moderna said in a statement that it has already initiated the rolling regulatory review process with Israel’s Health Ministry. (JPost / VFI News)
