Reportedly, Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) has submitted its single-shot coronavirus vaccine for emergency use with the Food and Drug Administration for authorization. If authorized, the company plans to supply the U.S. with 100 million doses in the first half of 2021, also it expects to begin shipments immediately after authorization.
Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine proved 66% effective at blocking Covid-19 in a Phase 3 study, ahead of FDA’s bar for a minimum of 50% effectiveness. Vaccine stock Pfizer and development partner BioNTech authorized Covid-19 vaccine is 95% effective. Moderna’s is 94.1% effective and is also authorized.
“Today’s submission for emergency use authorization of our investigational single-shot Covid-19 vaccine is a pivotal step toward reducing the burden of disease for people globally and putting an end to the pandemic,” stated J&J’s Chief Scientific Officer Paul Stoffels.
However, J&J claims that its coronavirus vaccine is easier to manufacture and ship and is stable for two years. On the other hand, Moderna says its vaccine can be stored in a standard refrigerator for three months and Pfizer’s vaccine has to be transported and stored at ultra-cold temperatures. Johnson & Johnson informed that it will ship its vaccine using the same cold-chain technologies it already uses.
