J&J’s Booster Shot Effective In Preventing Hospitalization Caused By Omicron Variant In S. Africa -Study

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, a booster dose of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) Inc’s single-dose COVID-19 vaccine has proven to be 84% effective at preventing hospitalization in South African healthcare workers who became infected with the fast-spreading Omicron variant. The real-world study was based on a second dose of the J&J vaccine administered to 69,092 healthcare workers between Nov. 15 and Dec. 20.

The South African study of the J&J shot showed that the vaccine’s effectiveness at preventing hospitalization increased from 63% shortly after a booster was administered to 84% 14 days later, the effectiveness reached 85% at one to two months post the booster shot. Scientists in South Africa first alerted the World Health Organization about Omicron in late November, a highly infectious variant that is spreading quickly in other countries.
