US approves third Covid vaccine

The Covid-battered United States authorized Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine for emergency use on Saturday (Feb 27).

US President Joe Biden hailed his country’s announcement of its third available vaccine but said the nation’s battle was far from over.

“This is exciting news for all Americans, and an encouraging development in our efforts to bring an end to the crisis,” Biden said in a statement, but warned Americans “cannot let our guard down now or assume that victory is inevitable.”

The single-shot J&J vaccine is highly effective at preventing severe Covid-19, including against newer variants, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said before giving it a green light.
