When Pfizer partnered with German manufacturer BioNTech to tackle COVID-19, they delivered an FDA authorized vaccine in record time, distributing millions of doses less than a year after receiving the genetic sequence of the virus. The first mRNA vaccine approved for any disease, Pfizer’s two-dose solution was authorized in December and was 95% effective in trials.
A week after the Pfizer authorization, Moderna’s mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccine became the second of its kind to get FDA authorization. In trials, the Cambridge, Massachusetts– based company’s vaccine was shown to be over 94% effective after two doses. Moderna’s vaccine can be stored in a regular fridge or freezer, while Pfizer’s must be stored below –76 degrees Fahrenheit.
