Why Moderna Shares Continue To Climb Higher Today

Moderna Inc (NASDAQ: MRNA) is trading higher on continued strength Monday after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration last week authorized booster doses of the company’s COVID-19 vaccine in the US for adults 18 and older.

The booster can be used in all individuals 18 years and older who have completed a primary vaccination with any other authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine. The booster dose is to be administered at least six months after completion of any primary series COVID-19 vaccination.

“This emergency use authorization comes at a critical time as we enter the winter months and face increasing COVID-19 case counts and hospitalizations across the country,” said Stéphane Bancel, CEO of Moderna.

“We thank the FDA for their review, and are confident in the robust clinical evidence that a 50 microgram booster dose of mRNA-1273 induces a strong immune response against COVID-19,” Bancel added.
