“Among U.S. grown-ups without immunocompromising conditions, immunization viability against COVID-19 hospitalization during March 11-August 15, 2021, was higher for the Moderna antibody (93%) than the Pfizer-BioNTech immunization (88%) and the Janssen immunization (71%),” the group wrote in the CDC’s week after week report on death and illness, the MMWR.
