Pfizer-Moderna Covid Vaccine Memes

Pfizer and Moderna have been popping up on the news lately about their vaccines development progress.

On November 9, Pfizer released a media statement that their vaccine candidate was found to be more than 90% effective in preventing Coronavirus in participants. It was the first interim efficacy analysis and the participants involved had no history of prior COVID-19 infection.

The study enrolled over 43,500 participants and no serious safety concerns have been reported. Pfizer admitted, however, that the main challenge to their vaccine candidate is the ultra-low temperature formulation and storage.

Moderna crashed Pfizer's party, on November 16,  by announcing that their vaccine candidate has higher efficacy than Pfizer's - 94.5%. More than 30,000 participants were enrolled in the study. 

The vaccine is being developed in collaboration with the National Institute of Allergy (NIAID) and Infectious Diseases and Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA).

2 days later, Pfizer announced that they have concluded their vaccine candidate study and met all primary efficacy endpoints. The reported efficacy is over 94% (in adults over 65 years old).

The company has also updated the storage and transport of its vaccine;

"The companies have developed specially designed, temperature-controlled thermal shippers utilizing dry ice to maintain temperature conditions of -70°C±10°C. They can be used be as temporary storage units for 15 days by refilling with dry ice."

Although these are really great news, Twitter users did not fail and came up with some really interesting memes on this little Pfizer-Moderna vaccine feud.

Oh, the drama!
