Moderna coronavirus vaccine may NOT stop transmission admits chief scientist
Preventing transmission of the virus was not factored into the vaccine trials of both Pfizer and Moderna.
However, on Monday, data by pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, who are producing the Oxford University vaccine, found their jab might prevent viral transmission.
Speaking to Axios, Mr Zaks said: “Our results show that this vaccine can prevent you from being sick, it can prevent you from being severely sick.
“They do not show that this vaccine can prevent you from potentially transiently carrying the virus and infecting others.”
