FDA Committee Endorses Johnson & Johnson Single-Dose Coronavirus

The move sets the single-dose vaccine up for emergency use authorization by the Food and Drug Administration.

A FOOD AND DRUG Administration advisory committee on Friday unanimously endorsed Johnson & Johnson's coronavirus vaccine candidate, likely setting it up for an imminent emergency use authorization from the agency.

All members of the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee voted that the benefits of the single-dose vaccine outweigh the risks for individuals 18 years of age and older.

If the agency follows the committee's recommendation, which it typically does, and grants an emergency use authorization, the Biden administration said it is ready to deliver up to 4 million doses as soon as next week.

The U.S. has purchased 100 million total doses of the vaccine, and Johnson & Johnson expects to have 20 million available by the end of March. Because it is a single-dose vaccine that only requires standard refrigeration, it will be much easier to deploy than other vaccine options.

The vaccine, which was developed by Johnson & Johnson's vaccine arm Janssen Biotech, would be the third coronavirus vaccine approved by the agency. FDA staff released a brief earlier this week that found the vaccine has a "favorable safety profile."

Clinical trials of the vaccine in the U.S. showed an efficacy of 72% in preventing moderate to severe disease after one month.

Over 70 million doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have been administered in the U.S., according to a tracker from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Vaccinations are "our path out" of the pandemic, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said at a press briefing on Friday.

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory committee will meet over the weekend to vote on recommendations for the vaccine.
