Founder of Moderna: The COVID-19 vaccine will be vaccinated every year in the future!
Founder of Moderna: The COVID-19 vaccine will be vaccinated every year in the future! While governments around the world are discussing whether to approve the COVID-19 vaccine booster, Noubar Afeyan, co-founder and chairman of the board of directors of Moderna (MRNA.US), predicts that “enhanced injections may become the norm” at some point in the future.
“Public health officials around the world will have to decide whether everyone should be given a booster shot of the COVID-19 vaccine.” He said in an interview with the media.
“My guess is that after a long enough period of time, such a situation may eventually emerge in the future: we will have to get the COVID-19 vaccine at least once a year, just like the flu vaccine, it will become a normalized vaccine.” Afeyan added. .
Afeyan said that the company hopes that in the next few months, its COVID-19 vaccine will be fully approved by the US government, and the vaccine is currently authorized for emergency use. He said the company is currently testing a half-dose booster vaccine that appears to be very effective.
Afeyan recalled that world leaders strongly called for the vaccine to be obtained before full approval. “I did receive a lot of calls from national leaders, which I had never thought of before. But before the full approval, I cannot make a decision. From a legal perspective, all vaccine supplies belong to the United States. Government owned.”
In addition, according to media reports, Flagship Pioneering, a venture capital firm founded by Afeyan, is investing in several new technologies. He said that these technologies can help the world prepare adequately for the next pandemic.
“We have used methods including machine learning and AI systems. These methods are actually based on the basic information known by the virus, accurately simulating the direction of the virus’s spread, and predicting the mutations we will see. In this epidemic After that, these will be technologies that we didn’t have before but now we must have.” Afeyan said when talking about new technologies invested.
