IIRC, 85% less Covid illness with 1 x Pfizer.

I'm expecting Moderna to be the same. I've read there is only a 1 ingredient difference between pfizer and moderna. And -so far- just about every research result released by pfizer has been matched by moderna a week or so later.

Huge number of COVID infections are from people with no symptoms
https://www.futurity.org/covid-19-infections-non-symptomatic-cases-2525272

Quote
During the initial wave of the COVID-19 outbreak in New York City, only between one in five and one in seven cases of the virus was symptomatic, according to new research.

Researchers also found that non-symptomatic cases substantially contribute to community transmission, making up at least 50% of the driving force of SARS-CoV-2 infection.
