Moderna had said that the vaccine against the omicron variant of the coronavirus should be ready in 2022. Well, it is not yet clear to the people that whether a new formula will be needed to be made to fight the coronavirus new variant or whether it will be enough to just get the old vaccine.
The situation is not very clear yet to any of us. The only thing that we do know is that there is a new variant of concern called the omicron that had been found in southern Africa, and it is really spreading at a high rate.
“We should know about the ability of the current vaccine to provide protection in the next couple of weeks, but the remarkable thing about the mRNA vaccines, Moderna platform is that we can move very fast,” Burton said on BBC’s “Andrew Marr Show.”

“If we have to make a brand new vaccine, I think that’s going to be early 2022 before that’s really going to be available in large quantities,” the Moderna chief added to his statement.
The vaccine maker has already mobilized a lot of people or rather workers we must say to study the new variant of concern in order to figure out whether we need the vaccine in the first place or not. Then if it is required, then they will start to work on creating this new Vaccine formula immediately. This is the kind of efficiency that they are trying to show. That is all for now. We do hope that you stay safe and your family stays safe too out there.
