Reportedly, Britain’s medicine regulator has approved Johnson & Johnson’s (JNJ) Janssen COVID-19 vaccine for use, making it the fourth COVID-19 vaccine to be approved in Britain. Britain had earlier approved vaccines made by Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and Moderna. The country reduced its order to 20 million doses from 30 million doses as the country’s vaccine rollout progresses.
“This is very welcome news and another boost to our hugely successful vaccination programme,” Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Twitter.
Britain has secured two-thirds of its adult population with the first COVID-19 shot, and the government cited the “unprecedented scale and pace” of the rollout as behind the decision to cut its order. However, Health Minister Matt Hancock stressed that the J&J shot would play a key role.
J&J’s vaccine is already approved in the United States and European Union, where reports of rare blood clots are being assessed. The government said that the shots would be available later in the year.
