Johnson & Johnson has submitted an authorization request for its vaccine in Europe

The EMA Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use will evaluate the anti-Covid-19 vaccine developed by Janssen, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. The manufacturer submitted an authorization request to it on February 16. The EMA hopes to be able to give an opinion by mid-March.

The vaccine candidate will be evaluated on an accelerated schedule. The European Medicines Agency began in early December 2020 to analyze the data from the trials carried out on this vaccine as part of a “rolling” review.

Three COVID-19 vaccines are already available in the European Union. They are manufactured by the alliance of Pfizer and BioNTech, by Moderna and by AstraZeneca.

The one from Johnson & Johnson, which uses a modified adenovirus, is a single-dose vaccine that can be stored for several months in a “conventional” refrigerator. Europe has pre-ordered 200 million doses of it in the summer of 2020.
