What we know about Moderna's coronavirus vaccine and how it differs from Pfizer's

Both vaccines rely on mRNA to work, although with slightly different structures & makeup.


Moderna's coronavirus vaccine candidate is similar to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine that was authorized and shipped out to the first Americans earlier this week.


But there are a few key differences. Most importantly, Moderna's vaccine can be stored in normal freezers and does not require a super-cold transportation network, making it more accessible for smaller facilities and local communities.
