Moderna Covid vaccine produces lasting immune response, study finds

Updated: few hours ago

Washington, Sep 15 (PTI) Immunity generated by the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine lasts for at least six months, and there is no indicator that vaccinated people will need a booster shot, according to a study.

While the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine led to strong immune and antibody responses for at least six months after clinical trial participants were fully vaccinated, it is likely that the immune response could last much longer, the researchers said.

The research, published in the journal Science, noted that this time point of six months is critical because that is when true immune memory has formed.
