Not great numbers, however...The efficacy of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine against moderate to severe/critical Covid-19 across all geographic areas was 66.9% at least 14 days after the single-dose vaccination and 66.1% at least 28 days after vaccination, according to the analysis, which is meant to brief the FDA's Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee.
Even better..."There were no specific safety concerns identified in subgroup analyses by age, race, ethnicity, medical comorbidities, or prior SARS-CoV-2 infection," the analysis said.
It's also a single dose vaccine.“We know this vaccine prevents 85 percent of the severe disease … It was 100 percent effective in preventing hospitalization and deaths, and that’s really what’s important,” said Nancy M. Bennett, a professor of medicine and public health sciences at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. “Those facts are the most important thing to recognize.”
I heard that on the car radio in the way home. I'm not going to take a chance on that one. Whatever they consider the immportant thing to consider, the important thing for me to consider is that my endocrinologist told me that if I get COVID I'd get very sick.(Warning: auto-play video)
In an analysis released Wednesday, the US Food and Drug Administration said the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine has met the requirements for emergency use authorization -- another step toward the authorization of a third shot for the United States.www.cnn.com

I'll take anything, its better than nothing, which is what my high risk butt has right now. I am fully expecting that masks will be the new norm, but it would be nice to not worry -so- much.I heard that on the car radio in the way home. I'm not going to take a chance on that one.

Maybe the J&J vaccine will do for people who aren't at extra risk, IDK.
I'm not going near it, it's an mRNA vaccine for me.
I guess it would depend on which location you were near, but when I lived in San Diego, I loved going to the Fry's there. It was awesome! I went there a lot for my computer or household electronic needs, especially when I needed to build a new computer. Sadly, I don't live near one now, but its loss will still be missed.Never heard of them until now, and reading Casey's description I don't think I missed out on a lot.
In their day, they were a pretty great store for computers and electronic stuff. They had a huge section of computer-related books and magazines, another huge section of programs, and yet another of games, not to mention their CD section. There was hi-fi gear, DVD players, and about four long aisles of computer accessories.Never heard of them until now, and reading Casey's description I don't think I missed out on a lot.
The story is entirely about what various EU politicians, government officials, and public health authorities have said about the subject.This story smells a bit like propaganda to me to be honest, to justify that the UK gets their share of the produced vaccines again, while the EU faces yet another delay in the upcoming months.
Why on earth would the EU be not amused about yet another delay if they weren't using them?
When the doctor saw I answered the question if I'm pregnant with 'not sure', she had a good laugh and then she said she would alter it in "not likely".I guess I will be in all the newspapers, news and talk shows all over the world in no time, if so.
So just keep patiently an eye on the news.
