The FDA authorizes Johnson & Johnson's Covid-19 vaccine. It is the first single dose Covid-19 vaccine available in the US

The US Food and Drug Administration authorized Johnson & Johnson's Covid-19 vaccine Saturday. It is the first single dose Covid-19 vaccine available in the US, and is one that 'checks nearly all the boxes.'

Why Americans shouldn't turn their noses up at Johnson & Johnson's vaccineWith more than 28.5 million confirmed Covid-19 cases and over 511,000 reported deaths in the US since the start of the pandemic, and while the demand for vaccine still far exceeds supply, these vaccines can't come soon enough."A third safe and effective vaccine is very welcome news," Andy Slavitt, the White House's senior for Covid Response, tweeted on Friday.The vaccine, made by Janssen, J&J's vaccine arm, is safe and effective, and it's considered flexible. It's a single dose, and it doesn't require special storage.The vaccine is authorized for people ages 18 and older.Read More"We need a vaccine that can be quickly mass produced," Dr. Greg Poland, head of the Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group, said Friday."We'd want to see a reasonable duration of efficacy and protection."The Janssen vaccine candidate checks nearly all the boxes."They thought they were being vaccinated. It was a trial.The vaccine was tested in more than 44,000 people in the US, South Africa and Latin America. Globally, it was 66.1% effective against moderate to severe/critical Covid-19 at least four weeks after vaccination, according to an FDA analysis. In the US, it is considered 72% effective, and offered 86% protection against severe forms of the disease."One dose will keep you out of the hospital, keep you out of the intensive care unit, and keep you out of the morgue," Dr. Paul Offit, a vaccine adviser to the FDA, told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Friday.The vaccine comes with few side effects, most of which are mild, including pain at the injection site, headache, fatigue and muscle pain.Overall, non-fatal serious adverse events were infrequent, according to the FDA's analysis, and there were no reported cases of anaphylaxis following vaccination in the trial. There have been a small number of severe allergic reactions with the Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines. For example, in the first week of the Pfizer vaccine rollout, there were only 29 cases out of 1.9 million doses administered, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.When will the US reach herd immunity and what will it look like?More research is needed, but the FDA analysis also hinted that the J&J vaccine may help prevent asymptomatic infections.A January study from the CDC showed that most coronavirus cases are spread by people without symptoms. If a vaccine prevented asymptomatic infection, it might help reduce opportunities to transmit the disease -- not just keep the vaccinated from getting sick.With so much positive data, an independent group of advisers voted unanimously on Friday to recommend the emergency use authorization of the J&J vaccine. Biden's stimulus effort hits the runway"I think it's a relatively easy call. It clearly gets way over the bar, and it's nice to have a single-dose vaccine," Dr. Eric Rubin, a member of the committee who is also the editor in chief of The New England Journal of Medicine and a professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, said after the vote.There is some concern that because the public has heard that the shot is only 72% protective in the US, and the Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines are about 95% protective, some will think this is a"second class" vaccine, but the experts say those numbers are highly misleading."It's difficult to make an apples-to-apples comparison between vaccines authorized based on data collected before new variants are believed to have been in widespread circulation," said Sarah Christopher, the policy advocacy director at the National Women's Health Network. Christopher spoke during the public comment section of the FDA's advisory meeting on Friday.Single Pfizer vaccine shot provides strong protection for those who've had Covid-19, UK studies suggestThe Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines were tested earlier in the pandemic when there were fewer known variants. FDA research found that the majority of the cases that happened during the South African part of the J&J trial came from a newer and possibly more contagious variant.Public health experts say people should take whatever shot is first available to them."If I had a J&J vaccine available today and a Moderna vaccine available tomorrow, I would be happy to take the J&J today. I don't feel like I would need to wait. They are all terrific vaccines for the things that we care about," Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of the Brown University School of Public Health, told a House Ways and Means Health Subcommittee hearing Friday.Doctor: I'm worried the Olympics can't be made safe against CovidExperts have said variants may fuel a surge of cases in the spring in the US, and say that's one reason why it's important to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible."We'll be seeing how much of an impact the variants have and how best these vaccines can address them, whether it will be booster doses, or other vaccines," said Dr. Aditya Gaur, a co-lead investigator on the J&J trial at St. Jude in Memphis."But I think one could not have asked for better from this first round of vaccine development from a standpoint of how quickly it has happened and how quickly it has started to roll out around the world."On Sunday, the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, known as ACIP, will meet to set the guidelines for who should get the vaccine. Their vote is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET.From there, the much needed vaccine could start rolling out to vaccine centers around the country.While the initial supply is limited -- the company says it only has about 4 million doses of its vaccine ready to ship"immediately" -- it should have 20 million ready by the end of March.Get CNN Health's weekly newsletter Sign up here to get The Results Are In with Dr. Sanjay Gupta every Tuesday from the CNN Health team.

What I find hard to understand is how these Republican Senators that follow Trump are obsessed with telling lies and death. Telling people not to put on a mask in the middle of a pandemic knowing people will die! We have to vote them out or find someway to remove them! Looking forward for Jack Daniel’s vaccine

Does this mean buy $JNJ Why has it taken so long when so many other Countries have successfully been using it for a couple of months , like the UK I had it weeks ago and your all still umming and ahrring and scratching your heads , and people are waiting and Dying all the time ?

They refused all the others saying they would not rush into testing. Then along comes an American company, late into the game, and viola! Approved.

Great job,thank you and God bless you all Grandma To ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN: Please don't air or broadcast Trump's speech at CPAC on Sunday. Why do they show two vials? No thanks It should be a good news for the world in that LDC countries need badly the vaccines for emergency use to curb the COVID-19 virus according to WHO's recommendation.

Have the FDA given themselves a shot yet? LMAO, still not getting one. NO WAY!!! Has it got asbestos in it This vaccine is a false hope. According to the top experts the virus is mutating at an alarming rate. We require a much stricter lockdown:Close all restaurants, bars, parks, schools, universities, and travel of any kind. If you break the rules you go to jail. New normal

Hopefully there are no long term adverse reactions. I guess we’ll find out in ten or twenty years. JustinTrudeau ....is Canada getting this Vaccine ? One dose ! Another game changer. Great news by all standards!! Please help me by retweeting my pinned post. I need food please anyone 🥺 Happy to say I'm part of this vaccine's trial in the USA

Less than 30k have died of COVID-19. Lol yeah right! I'm supposed to trust the baby powder guys?! Nope! Check out New Zealand's AllBlacks last game, this Scamdemic is BS, get real Chicken Littles 🐣 Good news. Now go get vaccinated as soon as you can. ShawnaKhalafiTV And soon...Tragically to follow an inexcusable amount of unsuspecting innocent people will experience the unfortunate nasty 'side effects.' from a rushed to market mad science 'experiment.' Many lives will be changed forever, if not destroyed & people will die. VaccineRoulette

I bet this vaccine is useless in 6 to 8 weeks, i bet its efficacy is under 50% for the new california recombination strain. 😎😎 If you want it, take it! That's your f'ng choice. Why people arguing about it? Wear your masks still okay. After that whole talcum powder law suit. I will NEVER use any Johnson & Johnson product.

The company is expected to supply 100 million doses to the US government in the first half of 2021. Wonderful. Hope this can play out in the big fight against this disease. Nearly all? So fuck me huh Kudos to Johnson and Johnson. However, the Covid death rate went up 10% this week, so keep taking precautions until more Americans are vaccinated.

66% efficacy? I'll take the 2 shot options instead. Nice. I wonder which type they will bring here. PriscillaLynch Der Spiegel: 'There r few other places in the world with a COVID-19 death rate as disproportionately high as the one in Slovakia. In an i/v, Pres Zuzana Čaputová concedes that mistakes made&explains why her country is considering deploying Russia's Sputnik V vaccine.' Ireland?

Now do Talcum Powder I'll take 3 for my household, thank you. Thanks Joe! I would take this one because JNJNews put in their experimental porcine valve in my heart 34 years ago. It worked beautifully for 13 years. I’m alive because of them. We ain’t forgot about what Johnson and Johnson did lol 🥳 😷😷😷👌🏾👀💯💉💉💉

Let's hope it doesn't cause cancer 😒 No asbestos, J&J? FDA USA Just a FYI, kraftmacncheese is allowed by the FDA to put food dye in their mac and cheese that is known to be cancerous, go to Europe and the Mac and Cheese aren't allowed to use cancer causing ingredients. You understand? The FDA does not care about your health. Wake up.

Interesting. Let’s see how this plays out... COVID19 vaccine This is how I feel when politicians force me to wear that stupid face condom. GeorgeFloyd ICantBreathe Yeaahhhhh 🚀🚀🚀🚀💸💸🕺🕺 good “The Covid-19 vaccines are miracles of modern science. We’re already seeing their dramatic impact on this pandemic.” Vaccination in Turkey.

From Australia: Great news, the vaccine combined with dropping infections should ensure a speedy path to the other side, you have had a hard time but things are starting to pay off,congratulations from AUS. Literally inject this shit into my veins Just like Fentanyl... I just don't get it. I'm all for the vaccines and those getting them but what good will it do when there is the CPAC convention and since masks aren't mandatory, many of those conservatives don't wear them. How are we ever going to get rid of the virus?

Hey J&J is that baby powder still causing cervical cancer? Moderna part 2 vax absolutely kicked my ass Hope it works perfectly This is another important and much awaited vaccine that will help in reducing morbidity and mortality due to COVID19. Thank you JNJGlobalHealth ThankyouAllScientists Let’s goooooo
