Moderna says it’s working on a booster shot that will be more effective on mutated coronavirus strains.

The company is working on two boosters – one for the South African variant, and another for ’emerging strains’.

The company says its current vaccine still offers ‘substantial protection’ from the coronavirus variants.

How concerned are you about these mutated strains? Will they mess up our vaccination plan?
