Reportedly, Swiss drug regulator Swissmedic has approved Johnson & Johnson’s (JNJ) COVID-19 vaccine for usage in the country, following the earlier two approved vaccines from Pfizer and BioNTech and from Moderna. Switzerland has so far not ordered J&J’s one-shot vaccine, while deliveries have begun in the United States, Europe is not slated to get the vaccine until the second quarter.
In Johnson & Johnson’s 44,000-person global trial, the vaccine proved to be 66% effective at preventing moderate-to-severe COVID-19 four weeks after inoculation. The vaccine proved 100% effective in preventing hospitalization and death. Switzerland has not yet ordered the J&J vaccine amid its first round of shot purchases, as it may not get vaccine amid supply bottlenecks until later in 2021. It has ordered around 36 million doses of vaccines, from Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, Novavax, CureVac, and AstraZeneca, with the approval for the last three still awaited.
