Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On June 12, 2020, pre-clinical data regarding Moderna’s mRNA vaccine candidate (mRNA-1273) against the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) was included in a manuscript which has been submitted to a peer-reviewed journal.

A pre-print of the manuscript, entitled “SARS-CoV-2 mRNA Vaccine Development Enabled by Prototype Pathogen Preparedness,” is currently available at https://biorxiv.org/cgi/content/short/2020.06.11.145920v1. Preprint manuscripts on bioRxiv are not final and have not been peer-reviewed; they are intended to disseminate findings to the scientific community more quickly.
