Early results show Moderna‘s Covid-19 vaccine is effective against the new strains of the virus found in Britain and South Africa, the pharmaceutical company said on Monday.

The firm said its vaccine triggers an immune response that could protect people against the variants in early laboratory tests.

As a precaution, Moderna is to start testing a third “booster” dose, alongside its two-dose vaccine, to see if that helps neutralize the virus strains further.

It is also working on a new booster vaccine which is specific to the South African variant of the virus.
