Another EU -Approved Vaccine

 The European Union (EU) yesterday approved the use of Johnson & Johnson's Covid-19 vaccine, hours after the European Medicines Agency (EMA) gave a positive conclusion about its safety and effectiveness.

Developed by Janssen, a pharmacy under Johnson & Johnson, it is the fourth vaccine approved by the EU after BioNTech-Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca.

According to Bernama, EMA recommends the use of Covid-19 Janssen vaccine for those over 18 years old.

EMA Executive Director Emer Cooke said the use of the vaccine only required one dose.

The results of clinical trials involving 44,000 people in the United States (US), South Africa and Latin American countries showed that the vaccine has an effectiveness of 67%.

"Safer and more effective vaccines will be on the market. With the number of doses we order, we can vaccinate up to 200 million people in the EU, ”European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said on Twitter.

The development gives hope in the implementation of the EU vaccination program which targets the vaccination of 70% of the adult population by September 21.
