Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shot Authorized for Emergency Use by U.S. FDA

10/20/2021 | 06:38pm EST

Johnson & Johnson announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for a booster dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine for adults aged 18 and older at least two months following primary vaccination with single-shot Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine; and for eligible individuals who received a different authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine. The Johnson & Johnson booster shot will be the same formulation and dosage as the primary shot. The EUA follows a unanimous recommendation from the FDA'sVaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) based on data provided by the Company, including efficacy, safety and immunogenicity data from its clinical trials and real-world evidence data. When administered as a primary or booster dose, following initial vaccination with the Company's COVID-19 single-shot vaccine, it provided protection against symptomatic disease and was generally well-tolerated, highlighting the favorable benefit-risk profile of a booster dose in light of the ongoing pandemic. A single booster dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine may also be administered as a heterologous booster dose following completion of primary vaccination with another authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine. The eligible population(s) and dosing interval for the heterologous booster dose are the same as those authorized for a booster dose of the vaccine used for primary vaccination. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) will provide a potential recommendation on October 21. In the U.S., there is sufficient supply to support boosting to those who have received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. More than 15.2 million doses of the Company's COVID-19 vaccine have been administered as primary vaccinations in the U.S.
