The US may reject 70 million doses of J&J’s coronavirus vaccine

The United States may reject about 70 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine due to possible contamination, The New York Times reports, citing sources.

Earlier it was reported that the company in Baltimore mixed up the ingredients of two different coronavirus vaccines, as a result, 15 million doses of the J&J vaccine were spoiled.

According to a government source, the FDA is concerned about possible contamination of other batches that were produced at the same time as the contaminated doses. Now the US regulator is considering the use of about 70 million doses of J&J produced at this plant.

According to the publication, the total number of “suspicious” doses of J&J, arrived in the EU, Canada, and South Africa is from six to nine million.

Earlier, US medical regulators the FDA, and CDC lifted restrictions on the use of the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine. Both regulators believe that the use of the vaccine should continue, and are confident that it is safe and effective.
