Moderna vs. Pfizer: Both Knockouts, but One Seems to Have the Edge
A series of studies found that the Moderna vaccine seemed to be more protective as the months passed than the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
The latest such study, published on Wednesday in The New England Journal of Medicine, evaluated the real-world effectiveness of the vaccines at preventing symptomatic illness in about 5,000 health care workers in 25 states. The study found that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine had an effectiveness of 88.8 percent, compared with Moderna’s 96.3 percent.
Research published on Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the efficacy of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine against hospitalization fell from 91 percent to 77 percent after a four-month period following the second shot. The Moderna vaccine showed no decline over the same period.
“It’s not appropriate for people who took Pfizer to be freaking out that they got an inferior vaccine.”
I’m thinking that Pfzier has got the Bigger $BUCKS$ riding behind it. But I was never offered a Choice. Mine was Moderna. But with the BOOSTER, I believe you’ll be better than with just the two.
