March 1, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Major COVID-19 vaccine maker Moderna posted a more than 13-fold increase in total revenue in 2020, compared to 2019, the company revealed in an earnings report on Thursday.
“Total revenue was $803 million for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to $60 million for the year ended December 31, 2019,” the report said, adding that much of the change is linked to the company’s coronavirus vaccine, mRNA-1273.
“The increases in [the fourth quarter of 2020 and the full year] were driven by increases in grant revenue and product sales,” the report continued. The rise in grant revenue came primarily from an award by the federal Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), it said.
The U.S. government has pledged over $500 million to aid the development of mRNA-1273and claims a stake in the intellectual property, Axios reported last year. Moderna “retains worldwide rights to develop and commercialize” the jab, Thursday’s report noted.
“We began to recognize revenue in December 2020 from our COVID-19 vaccine subsequent to its authorization for emergency use by the FDA and Health Canada,” the report added, announcing nearly $200 million in product revenue in 2020. mRNA-1273is the only product that Moderna has brought to the market.
The coronavirus vaccine also helped boost the company’s market capitalization by more than $50 billion and skyrocket its share price over 700% last year. Morgan Stanley has estimated that roughly half of the new value is due to the vaccine.
The rapid growth of Moderna, a previously little-known Massachusetts-based startup, has turned at least three shareholders into billionaires so far, with top executives cashing out almost $100 million by May alone.

Mainstream media sources are promoting offensive suggestions by some doctors that people who refuse a vaccine for COVID-19 should be "punished" by the government and by business - effectively coercing them into taking the vaccine.
- One group of doctors writing in 'USA Today' suggested that the government impose special taxes (i.e., fines) on people who refuse the vaccination and that business simply refuse to serve them. [see story below]
- Another doctor writing in an online publication called 'The Conversation' shamelessly suggested that people who refuse a vaccine should be given a psychoactive drug to induce compliance. [see story below]
But, these suggestions are plain political posturing, and have nothing to do with science or with the recent trends of the disease.
And, in case they haven't noticed, we live in a democracy not a medical dictatorship!
Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks policy-makers and business people, at all levels, to pledge to respect the rights of those who, in good conscience, decide not to vaccinate themselves or their children.
People should not have to live in fear of governmental or corporate retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
It would be intolerable and immoral for the government or business to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will to avoid a fine, or just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping.
Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.
So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished for refusing a vaccine.
Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.
Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.
We can no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question, especially now that, statistically speaking, the initial brunt of the COVID crisis has passed.
Neither can we accept the dictates of doctors who seem detached from reality and from science, and who only seem to be attached to the idea of promoting ideas which contribute to the agrandizement of power and control of political interests, and wealth of those who stand to make a lot of money from the sale of a COVID vaccine.
Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks government and business leaders to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and not seek to punish them for doing so.

Moderna’s expansion is likely just beginning, the company indicated on Thursday, highlighting “a total of $18.4 billion in anticipated product sales” of the COVID-19 vaccine this year based on already-signed agreements.Moderna expects to distribute between 700 million and 1 billion doses of the vaccine in 2021 and up to 1.4 billion by 2022. Over 60 million doses of mRNA-1273 have been shipped to date.
Pfizer, another top COVID-19 vaccine maker, recently announced massive anticipated earnings from its vaccine as well, with $15 billion in predicted sales in 2021. Revenue from the COVID-19 vaccine would outpace that of the Pfizer's current best-selling product by almost $10 billion.
While the novel mRNA vaccines are shaping up to be virtually unparalleled money-makers for Big Pharma, experts have repeatedly linked them to severe adverse effects, including prion disease and rare autoimmune disorders. Other have serious raised concerns about the jabs’ trials.
More than 1,000 deaths after COVID-19 vaccination have been reported to the U.S. government in the last three months, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) revealed on Thursday. The numbers are likely an undercount, given the well-documented inefficiency of the CDC’s vaccine injury tracking system.
Meanwhile, the U.K. government has cautioned that pregnant and breastfeeding women should not receive the vaccine. In December 2020, it published a guide to medical professionals about the Pfizer vaccine recommending that it not be taken by pregnant women and advised women of childbearing age not to get pregnant within two months of accepting their second dose. Women were also warned that the vaccine should not be used during breastfeeding, as its effect on babies was still unknown. Regarding fertility, the 10-page “Reg 174 Information for UK Healthcare Professionals” said only that it was “unknown whether COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 has an impact.”
