Use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should facilitate the distribution of immunizers, as it only needs one dose
The President of U.S, Joe Biden, promised that the country will have a vaccine against Covid-19 for all adults by the end of May. The statement was made on Tuesday, 2, after Biden announced an agreement for Merck to contribute to the manufacture of the Johnson & Johnson, which became the third approved vaccine in the country. With that, the president would deliver the immunizers two days months before the original forecast. Three weeks ago, Biden promised 300 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine by the end of July. Biden also said that educators and school staff will be a priority, and should receive at least one dose of immunizers by the end of March.
A White House announced that with the addition of Johnson & Johnson vaccines to the list of vaccines licensed by the FDA, the country’s regulatory agency, the government can commit to increasing vaccine supplies to states to more than 15 million doses a week. Biden also pointed out that his team has been acting to recover “a chaos” inherited by the management of his predecessor, Donald Trump, saying he did not have a plan to fight the pandemic or to distribute vaccines quickly. The use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should facilitate the distribution of immunizers, since it only needs one dose, while vaccines from Pfizer and yes Modern they need two.
