Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Do you think mRNA-1273 will make it all the way through the testing and approvals and be the one that gets actually mass produced and used?

-Vax

A:

Dear Vax,

Thank you for letting me do some basic research on a potential vaccine that I had never heard of. I'm excited for that potential vaccines are on their way, however I don't have confidence that this one will be the one that gets mass produced and used. For one thing, it's one of the first attempts and history shows us that many times the first attempts are not the most effective. This leads me to believe that it may get approved for use, but I wouldn't bet any money that it gets widely used (just based on my non-expert knowledge of statistics).

Here's to hoping we see the end of this pandemic sooner than later.
