Am I the only one disturbed by the fact that some of the participants in Modernaís 6mo-11y/o trial are located in China? Can we trust safety data coming out of China?

Iím not an anti-vaxxer and not trying to create FUD, but why would they go at it this way?
There is no covid in China, seems like a really silly place to test a vaccine... thereís probably some angle like marketing Moderna vaccine to Chinese

Are they testing efficacy for children 6m-11y where risks of serious illness are low? Or just safety, in which case COVID prevalence isn't an issue.

It's probably so they can get approval in China.


Like how Astrazenica had to complete a US trial, to get FDA approval, even though its been approved in the UK for months

The Chinese, who have several domestically-developed vaccinates, will buy the American one? Doesnít sound right.

They've recently announced that they're gong to mix their vaccines with the American ones because theirs are not very effective.

Canít believe the Chinese would publish the truth about the poor efficacy of their vaccines.

Nice, not surprised to see that theyíre developing (or stealing?) their own mRNA vaccines, and that they badmouthed/FUDíd Pfizerís vaccine.

If China has non-mRNA vaccines with 79% efficacy, and no significant domestic spread, they could use that to vaccinate their entire population (the people will all comply), that should get them close enough to herd immunity, or at least keep R low enough for them to have an even easier time quashing any outbreaks.

A friend of mine  got the Moderna vaccine last week and told me he felt fine.
 Now he tells me his taste is off, is that a common side effect ?

He wasnít happy with me when I told him, thatís totally normal. It just means they activated the microchip 😜

Thatís a COVID symptom, he may have asymptomatic COVID. Maybe he should take a PCR test.

Moderna said on Tuesday that its coronavirus vaccine, authorized only for use in adults, was powerfully effective in 12- to 17-year-olds. In a clinical trial of the vaccine in adolescents, there were no cases of symptomatic Covid-19 among fully vaccinated teens, the company reported in a news release.

Moderna plans to apply to the Food and Drug Administration in June for authorization to use the vaccine in adolescents. If approved, its vaccine would become the second Covid-19 vaccine available to U.S. adolescents, after federal regulators authorized the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for 12- to 15-year-olds earlier this month.

I wonder if booster shots will need to be the same as the initial shots; my layman's understanding is that they shouldn't need to be...

I asked a similar question recently.

Also, why arenít the variant-targeting boosters a part of the equation? Thereís been so little chatter about them.
