Pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson was given the green light by the FDA’s advisory committee after their COVID-19 vaccine received approval for emergency distribution. The company wasted no time in dispatching the shots across various locations.

Johnson & Johnson CEO Alex Gorsky stated that a significant amount of doses are already in transit and en route to different destinations.

“We’re currently shipping 4 million doses,” Gorsky mentioned during an interview with NBC. “Within the next 24 to 48 hours, the vaccination drive will commence.”

Unlike the vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine requires only a single dose, eliminating the need for a second shot after a few weeks. Moreover, it can be stored in a standard refrigerator rather than a specialized freezer. While it may be 66% effective compared to the other two vaccines, its efficacy against severe illness stands at 85%, and it has a 100% success rate against fatal or hospitalization-requiring cases. It’s crucial to consider that the vaccine’s trials occurred during the peak of cases and in regions with particularly virulent variants, resulting in slightly different data.

Dr. Anthony Fauci reassured the public regarding the Johnson & Johnson vaccine’s capabilities, emphasizing that it will fulfill its purpose effectively. “If the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is available, I would take it. I personally trust its efficacy,” stated Fauci in an interview with NBC. He underlined, “It’s not a weaker vaccine. All three are highly effective vaccines.”
