Johnson & Johnson Coronavirus Vaccine Trials Paused Due to Illness in Participant

Coronavirus vaccines should be rolled out in four phases, with initial supply going to front-line health workers and first responders, an independent expert panel tapped by top USA health officials recommended earlier this month. Johnson & Johnson also said that it's not always immediately known if the affected person received a placebo or a study treatment. "Those are some of the ways that we're trying to be creative about vaccinating people safely during the pandemic", she says.

Wednesday's announcement came days after the Kremlin said that another vaccine "registered" in August had only just begun a second round of Phase III safety and efficacy trials.

Bourla - who pledged earlier this month that politics would not play a role in Pfizer's vaccine push - said the company's application for emergency approval would be reviewed by US Food and Drug Administration scientists along with a panel of independent experts at a public meeting.

"This will consume significant resources", Redfield told lawmakers.

On Thursday, ASTHO and the Association of Immunization Managers wrote a letter formally requesting $8.4 billion from Congress for these efforts. And given the upcoming elections, the chances are slim that a new COVID-19 bill will soon pass through lawmakers. "We also know that preventing this disease could require multiple vaccines and we're investing in those that we believe have the greatest potential for success".

MI has received $5.9 million so far, and Swanson says that money has gone to getting the state's immunization registry up to speed, and to local health departments for staffing. "Even the best laid plans can't be executed if you don't have the resources to do so".
