Switzerland starts 'rolling review' of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine”

This innovative technique is being used by other vaccine developers such as U.S. biotech company Moderna.

Meanwhile, Moderna hasn't yet made any announcement as to when it plans to release the efficacy data of its experimental COVID-19 vaccine.

"When people can't easily access reliable information around vaccines and when mistrust in actors and institutions related to vaccines is high, misinformation narratives rush in to fill the vacuum", First Draft said in a report.

Russia has claimed that its Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine is over 90 per cent effective at protecting people from COVID-19, according to initial results announced by the country's sovereign wealth fund, Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) on Wednesday, November 11.

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine needs to be kept at -70 degrees Celsius and such logistics could be hard to arrange in India, especially in rural areas, said AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria.

"Currently 40,000 volunteers are taking part in double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled Phase III of Sputnik V clinical trials, out of which over 20,000 have been vaccinated with the first dose of the vaccine and more than 16,000 with both the first and second doses of the vaccine."

The study comes as one of the major vaccine efforts showed promising results this week. "It's the worldwide vaccine race".

Russian Federation approved the "Sputnik V" vaccine in August without conducting a final test involving tens of thousands of people.

A rolling review of Moderna's coronavirus vaccine is underway for potential authorization in Switzerland, the company announced, a process that can move quickly while maintaining safety standards. "The government is also in close contact with COVAX and the Global Alliance for Vaccine Immunisation through which it is expecting to negotiate a significant quantity of vaccine for the Pakistani population as early as possible".

The Phase 1 interim analysis showed that the vaccine, called mRNA-1273, was generally well-tolerated across all age groups and triggered rapid and strong immune responses.
