J & J’s one-shot vaccine arrives courtesy of US generosity

The United States has donated 337,350 doses of Janssen/Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine to Bangladesh via COVAX.

It takes the total number of vaccine doses donated to Bangladesh by the US to more than 28.6 million – and many more millions will be arriving, assures USAID.

The Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a single-dose vaccine, so one shot can fully vaccinate one person, it said.

It was developed by US pharma and consumer goods giant Johnson & Johnson in collaboration with its Belgian subsidiary Janssen.

“With infections on the rise, we will stand together with Bangladesh to provide life-saving vaccines alongside training and logistics support to get shots in arms across the country,” said USAID in a post shared on its verified Facebook page.
