Government of India issues Emergency Use Authorization for the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 single-dose vaccine in India
Government of India issues Emergency Use Authorization for the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 single-dose vaccine in India

On behalf of a Johnson & Johnson India spokesperson:

We are pleased to announce that on 7th August 2021, the Government of India issued Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 single-dose vaccine in India, to prevent COVID-19 in individuals 18 years of age and older.

This decision was based on topline efficacy and safety data from the Phase 3 ENSEMBLE clinical trial, which demonstrated our single-shot vaccine was 85 percent effective in preventing severe disease across all regions studied, and showed protection against COVID-19 related hospitalization and death, beginning 28 days after vaccination.

This is an important step forward in accelerating availability of our COVID-19 vaccine to help end the pandemic.
