Item 7.01    Regulation FD Disclosure.

On May 24, 2022, Stephane Bancel, the Chief Executive Officer of Moderna, Inc. (the “Company”) published a blog post to the Company’s website announcing changes to his personal trading plans for shares of the Company’s company stock. These trading plans were adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 (“Rule 10b5-1”) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).

In the post, Mr. Bancel announced that he had amended his personal 10b5-1 plan to provide for the full exercise of a stock option to acquire 4,587,155 shares of the Company’s common stock at a price of $0.99 per share. The option was granted on August 19, 2013, and will be forfeited to the extent it is not exercised prior to August 19, 2023. Under the amended plan, Mr. Bancel will exercise the option to acquire 40,000 shares each Wednesday and Thursday, beginning on May 25, 2022 until the option is fully exercised. Mr. Bancel expects to contribute all of the after-tax proceeds from the exercise of the option to charitable causes. Mr. Bancel has not previously exercised any of the stock options that he has been granted by the Company.

The text of the blog post is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and is incorporated herein by reference. The information in this Item 7.01 and Exhibit 99.1 is intended to be furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
