MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico will soon authorize Moderna Inc’s COVID-19 vaccine, Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said on Saturday.
“Good news: soon, very soon, the Moderna vaccine with a technological profile similar to that of Pfizer will be approved in Mexico,” Ebrard said on a Twitter post.
Based on evidence from clinical trials, in people aged 18 years and older, the Moderna vaccine was 94.1% effective.
Moderna vaccine is a different type of vaccine. They don’t use the live virus to trigger an immune response. Instead, they teach your cells how to make a protein that will trigger an immune response. Once triggered, your body makes antibodies.
So far, the most common physical reactions to the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever, nausea, sore throat, diarrhea, and vomiting. There have been some reports of rare but more serious side effects from the vaccines.
