As per reports, Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) has submitted data to the World Health Organization (WHO) for emergency use listing of its single-dose COVID-19 vaccine, allowing wider access.
The healthcare giant informed that an emergency use listing is mandatory for supplying vaccines to the COVAX vaccine program, which is co-led by WHO and is working to deliver vaccine doses to middle-income countries and the poor. J&J entered into an agreement in December in support of the COVAX program. J&J’s vaccine can be stored at normal fridge temperatures, which is its unique selling point for countries with weaker healthcare facilities and infrastructure.
The company informed last month the vaccine was 66% effective in preventing COVID-19 in a large late-stage global trial against multiple variants of the coronavirus. The protection level of the vaccine varied from 72% in the United States, 57% in South Africa, and 66% in Latin America. Johnson & Johnson informed that the data delivered to WHO includes results from the late-stage trial.
