Trial on 44 thousand people, Efficie 66.1%
Dr. Greg Poland, head of the Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group, says that we need a vaccine that can be produced quickly and on a large scale. We want to see its affixes and how long it protects. The Janssen vaccine meets all of these criteria.
The trial of this vaccine was conducted on more than 44 thousand people from America, South Africa and Latin America. According to the FDA, this vaccine was given to moderate and critical patients of the corona. It was 66.1% effective during this period.
Vaccine supply in America less, demand more
A total of 2.92 crore cases have been confirmed by the US so far. Of these, over 5.24 lakh infected died. Currently, the demand for vaccine in the country is more than the supply. There is also no hope of improving the supply situation in the coming time.
The approval of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will help in the vaccination of large populations. The vaccine will be administered to people 18 years and older. More than 70 million people have been vaccinated in the US so far.
