Ireland will soon have a fourth Covid-19 vaccine to choose from as the European Medicines Agency has approved the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
In an announcement made on Thursday, the EMA confirmed that thr single shot jab was approved after a thorough evaluation of J&J’s data found the vaccine met the criteria for efficacy, safety and quality.
The news comes as the European Union looks to ramp up the supply of vaccines to member States from April onwards.
Currently Ireland has been using the Pfizer and BioNtech, Morderna and AstraZeneca vaccines.
The country could possibly see even more vaccines in the coming months as Curevac and Novavax vaccines could potentially be approved by EMA.
