The efficacy of the vaccine in tests against severe forms of Govit-19 in the United States is 85.9%. When all parts of the clinical trial were combined, it was 66.1% against the moderate forms of the disease, and overall “identical” for all types of population (age, species). Frequent side effects include injection site pain, headache, fatigue and muscle aches.

The vaccine is already in use in South Africa, where there is anaphylaxis – a severe allergic reaction, Johnson & Johnson’s Macaulay Dukey revealed at the meeting on Friday. Such reactions, although very rare, have been reported even after injection of Moderna and Pfizer vaccines. Representatives of the FDA have also noted some cases of urticaria and rare thromboembolic events (obstruction of blood flow) and tinnitus, for which the link to the vaccine cannot be ruled out, but further analysis is required.

At least three million units of the “J&J” product are ready for distribution soon “Next week” According to the US government. The US company has promised to send 100 million doses to the US by the end of June. With a total of 600 million doses ordered from Pfizer and Moderna, the United States will already have enough vaccines to vaccinate almost the entire population by the end of July. But those from Johnson & Johnson can further accelerate the vaccination campaign.

In total, more than 70 million injections have already been carried out in the country, making it the most affected country by the epidemic. However, so far, only 6.8% of Americans have received the two doses required for maximum immunity provided by the two licenses already licensed, which use innovative messenger RNA technology. The “J&J” vaccine is a “virus vector” vaccine. It supports another low-level virus that has been modified to include genetic mechanisms from one part of the virus that causes Covit-19. Within cells, a protein common to SARS-CoV-2 is produced, which trains the immune system to recognize it.

The pharmaceutical company also said it was studying the effects of the two drugs on immune protection, raising concerns among experts that it could lead the public astray or that it would be “very useful” if he felt deceived if this option changed.
