Investing.com – Moderna stock (NASDAQ:MRNA) and Takeda ADRs (NYSE:TAK) rose around 1.5% each after the two companies jointly said they had found no evidence that the two recent deaths in Japan were linked to the Covid-19 vaccine made by the former.

Takeda Pharmaceutical is the distributor of the vaccine in Japan.

Two men died last month after receiving their second dose. The two companies conducted a review that showed “the rare presence of stainless steel particles in the vaccine.” However, the presence “does not pose an undue risk to patient safety and it does not adversely affect the benefit/risk profile of the product,” they said.

The stainless steel element, classified as grade 316, is a high quality alloy used in manufacturing, food processing and several implants.

The findings come two days after Japanese authorities suspended as many as 2.6 million doses of Moderna's mRNA vaccine due to contamination in some batches.

It's amazing how one PR can make a vaccine guilty before getting all the fact across.  So easy to rush to judgement.  Something tells me a large hedge fund shorting MRNA was in the shadow then taking profits the next day of the so called contamination.  We don't know both sides of the story but something tells me its corrupted.
