In The Weeks Following Key Data On Us JNJ, Moderna Recalls COVID

Data needed to determine the timeliness of booster doses of COVID19 vaccines from Moderna Inc (MRNA.O) and Johnson and Johnson (JNJ.N) are weeks away, according to President Joe Biden Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday.
While health officials expected to recommend boosters for a large part of the population, Americans were urged not to seek booster doses until they were approved by the FDA.

On Friday, the third dosage of Pfizer (PFE.N) / BioNTech (22UAy.DE) vaccine was recommended in Food and Drug Administration advisory boosters, which were not approved for the general population aged 65 years or older or at a high risk of severe COVID11.
Although the FDA is not bound by the panel’s recommendation, it will take it into account when deciding whether or not to recommend the third round of injections.

People who received the Moderna videos vaccine or the single-dose JNJ vaccine are still awaiting indications of possible booster shots.  Other data could also show a broader need for recalls across the U.S. population, Fauci said.

The United States leads the world in the total number of reported COVID19 cases and deaths. According to data compiled by Reuters, nearly 676,000 people died during the U.S. pandemic. The increase in cases and deaths in the United States in recent months has been most acute in regions with lower vaccination rates, even as federal health officials are begging those who are resistant to vaccines to do so.

Biden announced in August that the government intends, pending approval by the FDA and experts from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to launch fire-fighting shots for people 16 and older. Authorities have also reported that the schedule for authorizing vaccines for children aged 511 and over is in the coming weeks. 

The use of COVID boosters could be extended. Senior health officials in the USA said broader approval of COVID19 reminiscences would take place within several weeks, following the recommendation of a third jab for a limited segment of the public this week by a United States Food and Drug Agency (FDA) expert advisory group. The director of the National Institutes of Health said on Friday that the FDA panel’s decision to limit booster injections of Pfizer COVID19 to Americans aged 65 and older and especially people with higher chances of severe illness.

In a Fox News interview on Sunday, Dr. Francis Collins predicted wider approval for most Americans in the upcoming weeks.
Collins said that the panel recommendation was correct on the basis of a “snapshot” of available data on the efficacy over time of the two-step Pfizer regime. But he said that real-time data from the USA and Israel are still showing decreasing efficiency for several groups of people that need processing in the near future. 

Some wealthy countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom, are considering booster injections of the coronavirus amid a recent spate of cases linked to the highly contagious Delta variant.
