Johnson & Johnson's Covid-19 vaccine recommends by USCDC

Washington: The United State’s Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) has recommended Johnson & Johnson's coronavirus vaccine for Americans who are 18 years of age and older, a final clearance for the shot after it was approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for emergency use.

On Sunday, the US Disease Control & Prevention  Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted to recommend the vaccine to be administered to people 18 and older, reports Xinhua news agency. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky signed the recommendation that approved the safety and effectiveness of Johnson & Johnson's Covid-19 vaccine and its use across the country.

"This official CDC recommendation, which follows Saturday's FDA decision to authorize emergency use of the vaccine, is another landmark toward an end to the pandemic," Walensky said in a statement.

This third safe, effective Covid-19 vaccine comes at a potentially "pivotal time", she said. As a one-dose vaccine, people do not have to return for a second dose to be protected.

In addition, this vaccine does not need to be kept in a freezer and can be stored at refrigerated temperatures. It is easy to transport and store and allows for expanded availability in most community settings and mobile sites, as supply scales up, Walensky said.
