Antibodies produced by persons immunized with the Moderna CoVid vaccine could capably neutralize the British and South African coronavirus strains in the test tube. This the conclusion of testing completed by Moderna and the NIH Vaccine Research Center.
Detailed testing revealed that Moderna vaccination yielded antibodies equally capable of protecting against the British B.1.1.7 CoVid strain as against the original Wuhan CoVid strain. Against the South African B.1.351 strain, the Moderna-induced antibodies were less powerful but still could get the job done. A booster shot is planned.
The Moderna mRNA vaccine produces more powerful antibodies than a natural CoVid infection. Even those who have weathered CoVid should be vaccinated.
