Question about English (US)

Which is correct?

1The doctor said the vaccine was effective.
2 The doctor said the vaccine is effective.

What makes me cobfused is whether the fact that "the vaccine is effective" can be deemed as an unchanging fact.

Since vaccines are not always effective, should the be verb be past tense?
