This is excellent news. Can you till us all about it very exciting news? This morning, Moderna has officially going to file today their Uea with the FDA about their coast vaccine. They are reporting a ninety four percent efficacy rate, one of the more important thing that they also said it was one hundred percent effective in preventing severe illness sum similar to the flu, shot, get the flu vaccine and still get the flu, but does a great job in making sure its, not the severe effects of the flu, and now it looks like moderna- is going to be the same with Covid 19 thats. Another way to keep people out of the hospital Ainsley thats great. The FDA is meeting on December tenth to talk about
Pfizer. Will they also be talking about Moderna, or will that be a separate panel? It will be a separate panel right now. The FDA is reviewing all the information that Pfizer has submitted on December tenth. They are going to convene and doing a nonbinding vote to see if it actually should get approved from the Eua or not a couple days before December. Tenth wee have a good idea if it will be approved or not. As the staff report comes out, they will be submitting the documents online so its available for public commentary.
