The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention today revealed the comparative effectiveness of the three Food and Drug Administration-authorized COVID-19 vaccines, with Moderna’s vaccine deemed most effective at preventing hospitalizations. Moderna’s vaccine was 93% effective during a five-month period in preventing hospitalizations among adults without immunocompromised conditions in the U.S., compared to Pfizer (88%) and Johnson & Johnson (71%). Despite the rankings, the study authors maintained that all three vaccines provide “substantial” protection against COVID-19 hospitalization.
