Moderna Inc. presented new data from an early trial that provides the first evidence that its COVID-19 vaccine stimulates the immune systems of older people.
In a phase 1 trial, Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine produced “consistently high levels” of neutralizing antibodies (a key component of the body’s protective response) in older adults. Antibody levels in people over 55 years old were comparable to those seen in younger adults.
The findings are important because older adults often do respond as well to vaccines as younger adults.
