mRNA vaccines appear effective against B.1.1.7, B.1.351 strains

Data from the epidemic in Qatar show Pfizer vaccine was 90% effective against B.1.1.7, 75% effective against B.1.351, and protected almost everyone from death and serious illness from these variants of concern.

Now… Looking for data re P.1 and whatever the hell is circulating in India. But this is excellent news.

(Moderna is extremely similar, and will likely perform the same.)


Update: this website/blog is run by a friend of a friend. She seems to be tracking research as to which vaccines work against which variants.

Let’s gooo Moderna


Pfizer doesn’t look to bad either. Let’s go team Pfizer!
