J&J COVID-19 vaccine gets approval from South Korea’s F&D ministry

SEOUL (SOUTH KOREA) – Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine has got a nod from South Korea’s food and drug safety ministry as the country pushes ahead with its vaccination campaign.

The decision reported by a TV channel was made after a panel of South Korean advisers last week recommended that the single-dose shot was safe and effective, the report said.

The J&J vaccine marks the third COVID-19 vaccine to be authorised in South Korea, following ones from AstraZeneca and Pfizer/BioNTech, both of which require two doses.
