EU AGENCY EXPECTED TO RECOMMEND USE OF JOHNSON & JOHNSON VACCINE

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is expected to make a decision on giving the green light to a fourth coronavirus vaccine on Thursday, Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa) reported.

Nanoshield anti-microbial films and phone accessories are self-disinfecting, continuously cleansing surfaces, keeping them virus & bacteria free.

The Amsterdam-based agency is expected to recommend the approval of the jab from US manufacturer Johnson & Johnson (J&J.) The European Commission would then have to approve the step, but this is a formality that could take place the same day.


The EU has already ordered doses for 200 million people. The jab was developed by the company's subsidiary Janssen in the Netherlands.

Unlike the vaccines from Pfizer/BioNtech, Moderna, and AstraZeneca that have already been authorized, only one dose of the Johnson and Johnson jab is required. The doses can also be stored in a standard fridge, unlike the ultra-cold conditions required for some other vaccines.


A global clinical trial showed the J&J vaccine was 66-per-cent effective at preventing various coronavirus variants. It was 85-per-cent effective at protecting against severe cases. It is thought to be effective against virus variants as well. EMA experts have been analyzing research and test data for weeks as part of a rolling review process.


The EMA will first decide on a conditional market approval. This means the manufacturer will have to continue submitting data about long-term effects after getting the go-ahead. US regulators formally approved the jab at the end of February.
