Moderna Announces Positive Results in Covid Vaccine Trial for Kids


CAMBRIDGE, MA –– On Monday, Moderna announced positive results in the trials currently underway for a coronavirus vaccine in kids ages 6 to 11. 

According to the pharmaceutical company, children involved in the Phase 2/3 study, dubbed KidCOVE study, "showed a robust neutralizing antibody response after two doses of mRNA-1273 at the 50 µg dose level with a favorable safety profile."

The KidCOVE study has had nearly 5,000 participants between the ages of 6 to 12.

The children were given two doses of mRNA-1273 to healthy children 28-days apart.

The group was divided into three age groups:

  • 6 months to <2 years
  • 2 to <6 years
  • 6 to <12 years

The released data only pertains to kids between 6 to 12.

The vaccine, mRNA-1273, was generally well tolerated with a safety and tolerability profile generally consistent with the Phase 3 COVE study in adolescents and adults. 

The majority of adverse events were mild or moderate in severity. The most common solicited adverse events were fatigue, headache, fever, and injection site pain.

“We are encouraged by the immunogenicity and safety profile of mRNA-1273 in children aged 6 to under 12 years and are pleased that the study met its primary immunogenicity endpoints,” said Stéphane Bancel, Chief Executive Officer of Moderna. “We look forward to filing with regulators globally and remain committed to doing our part to help end the COVID-19 pandemic with a vaccine for adults and children of all ages.”

The company plans to submit the data to the and Drug Administration (FDA), European Medicines Agency (EMA), and other global regulators in the near future.

Republicans will still find some other excuse to not care about their fellow Americans and refuse to give it to their kid.

More name calling from someone who can't even provide evidence of their own positions. I know I have already won when you resort to petty name calling. Seems par for the course for republicans, they never have anything intelligent to say.

Yeah, the anti-vax cult really enjoys their children dying of preventable diseases don't they?

The "vaccine" has already been proven as snake oil. If you can catch, transmit, become sick, and even die from a "virus" that you are vaccinated against you're being had. Don't blame the people for something they aren't at fault for. It also isn't their fault that there are that many gullible people in the world.

The vast majority of people who have died and been vaccinated have been in a high risk category (elderly) or had some other condition. You know that, you just like to spread misinformation, as I have already proven you wrong here several times.

No you haven't, that's just some shit you say to stroke your demented ego, meanwhile you're in full denial.

You tried to say that ivermectin was given to immigrants for covid, when they are clearly given it for parasites. I proved you wrong here;

In this one you said that "any of the vaccines available" effectiveness wanes, when it is only the pfizer biontech in the study that you linked yourself. Here I prove you wrong again;

Here I have to prove you wrong yet again for the same misinformation (you claim all 3 vaccines have waning effectiveness, which is untrue);

That's at least 3 times I have proven you wrong, now I believe this post counts as at least 4.

Who's in denial?

You are thinking a vaccine is gonna save you!!! It's a big ass lie! BTW everyone that died from covid without the vaccine also had UNDERLYING health issues or were killed by remdesivir and intubation! 

Oh c’mon no one wants children to die…except of course the pro-abortion CULT who have done all they can to facilitate the outright murder of some 60 million babies since Roe v Wade ;)

Did they have birth certificates? Did they have SSN's?

I know you won't answer, and will sidestep the question, because when it comes down to it you just spout off republican talking points and never actually engage in discussion. Except of course the times I prove you wrong and you try to wiggle out of it by saying you meant something else.

Yet another stupid question. They have the God given right to life according to the Declaration of Independence.

It’s ok I wouldn’t expect a godless liberal like you to understand ;)

Are immigrants that don’t have SSN or birth certificates expendable as well?

Why does a person that kills a pregnant woman get charged with double homicide?

Why does Public Law 108-212 use language such as “cause the death of” “a child” “in utero”? In order to “cause the death,” does not the subject require being previously alive? Read section (C) below.

Ԥ 1841. Protection of unborn children
‘‘(a)(1) Whoever engages in conduct that violates any of the provisions of law listed in subsection (b) and thereby causes the death of, or bodily injury (as defined in section 1365) to, a child, who is in utero at the time the conduct takes place, is guilty of a separate offense under this section.

(C) If the person engaging in the conduct thereby intentionally kills or attempts to kill the unborn child, that person shall instead of being punished under subparagraph (A), be punished as provided under sections 1111, 1112, and 1113 of this title for intentionally killing or attempting to kill a human being.

Hmmm...., well...., kinda sounds like the child in utero 1. Is Alive 2. Has a protected right to life


Liberals have to find a way to make themselves feel better about slaughtering the unborn, the removal of Americans freedoms, and the removal of God in our country, all the while trying to make everyone else look bad for their transgressions. First hand evidence of this logs in daily to point fingers at republicans, or generally anyone that disagrees with them. (You know who you are)

There is a reason why the dollar bill and almost every other American currency says "In God we Trust", because our government is corrupt down to the very last fiber.(that's both sides liberal story twister)

A pro abortionist lecturing others about the sanctity of life how rich lol.

it is interesting that the same pro abortionists who scream, it's their body and their choice, is trying to force everyone to be injected with the Covid vaccine. They are such a bunch of hypocrites

Nobody is trying to force you to take the injection, you can CHOOSE to stay home and not interact with the public instead. If you lose your job or some other hardship comes about because you don't get vaccinated, well, that is the consequence of your actions. Aren't republicans all about "personal accountability"?

I find it interesting that these rightists holler and scream about how their rights are being violated regarding this whole vaccination thing.  It is one thing to make decisions that affect only oneself.  It is an entirely different thing to make decisions that can also affect others, and the pure facts dictate that getting vaccinated is an intelligent thing to do should one be concerned about the welfare of those around us.  These clowns lack the wit to comprehend this.

The numbers are there.  No functioning mind can dispute them, and I find the occasional post here denigrating the facts behind the numbers to be at best silly, and at worst idiotic.

I have little regard for those without legitimate reasons for refusing proven vaccination protocols.  To take such actions out of political motivations or vague internet-based nonsense from Facebook, Twitter, or other such sources of inanity simply indicates to me that society is dumbing down.

I weep for our future.

Kamala Harris and Joe Biden were some of the first ones to come out against the vaccine. Biden said he didn’t trust Trump in the production of the vaccine, and Harris took it a step further and said, “If Trump says to take the vaccine, then I’m not taking it”.

When one considers the data associated with vaccination results, it is clear that the rightist refusals to accept accelerated emphasis on vaccination programs to be downright stupid.

What world do you live in? Will you at least admit that the threat of losing your job due to being unvaccinated is, at minimum, a “nudge” to get vaccinated? When that time comes, and it will, we will find out who is truly convicted. I know it is coming, maybe not with covid, but a time is coming where some will not be allowed to participate in commerce unless a prerequisite is met. I know this will happen soon because the “thought” process you espouse is rampant in society today. Oh yeah, and because that crazy ole Bible mentions it too. 

Nobody is trying to force you to take the injection, you can CHOOSE to stay home and not interact with the public instead. If you lose your job or some other hardship comes about because you don't get vaccinated, well, that is the consequence of your actions.”

“If you lose your job because you don’t get vaccinated, well that is the consequence of your action, but nobody is forcing you to take the vaccine.”- Me Someone

 C’mon man, if that ain’t a show of force, not sure what is. 

Definitely a nudge, in fact there’s an entire political theory based on the concept. It’s SUPPOSED to employ positive reinforcement to achieve a desired goal, but when it involves harassment, coercion and intimidation then it goes beyond just a “nudge” it’s tyranny!

The vaccinated can also make the same choices, America is a FREE country and in case you've forgotten what that means I'll refresh your tainted memory. It means that we as American's get to decide what is best for US. Not you, not the corrupt government that thinks they are the ruler of men..... not anyone! Take your shot and shove it in your ass sideways!

Hey IMO someone subjecting their child to medical research is “downright stupid” too. But when it comes down to it it’s the parents’ decision…as is also the case with those who choose to NOT vaccinate their child with a vaccine approved for “emergency use” only in children under the age of 16.
