SHARE

There are various controversies surrounding the covid 19 vaccines, and they seem to continue. The vaccines have been deployed all over the world for a while now, and people are now separated into two camps: The pro-vaccine individuals and the ones who are not that eager to get vaccinated due to the potential side effects that these vaccines might have.

MarketWatch revealed that there’s a study comparing individual immune responses to two major Covid -19 vaccines has shown that Moderna’s created more than double the antibodies than that of Pfizer and BioNTech.

The study involved 2,499 Belgian healthcare workers who were vaccinated with two doses of either company’s vaccine, and it was published just the other day in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Study conclusions – reasons for antibody production

Check out the conclusions that experts were able to draw following the tests.

The research showed that previously infected participants had higher antibody levels than those who had not been infected, but Moderna’s vaccine came out ahead for both groups.

It’s also important to note the fact that this study suggested a couple of reasons for the antibody level differences between vaccines, including a longer interval between shots for Moderna’s vaccine — 4 weeks — compared to Pfizer’s 3 weeks.

More than that, it’s been revealed that the researchers said the Moderna shot had a higher concentration of the key active ingredient used in both vaccines.

Anthony Fauci in the news

Dr. Anthony Fauci has been making tons of headlines related to the novel coronavirus. 

Not too long ago, we were revealing that CNN noted that the vaccines are protecting more than half of the US population from the current strains.

If too few people are getting vaccinated, the virus will be allowed to continue to spread, dr Anthony Fauci said.

“Then all of us who are protected against delta may not be protected against zaida (zeta),” the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said in a Q&A with USA Today.

Now, he is making headlines again while telling people how to prevent more Covid deaths.
