CDC endorses third COVID-19 vaccine

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has endorsed the safety and effectiveness of the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson)’s COVID-19 vaccine and its use in people age 18 and older.

This official CDC recommendation — which follows Saturday’s U.S. Food and Drug Administration's decision to authorize emergency use of the vaccine — is another milestone toward an end to the pandemic. The Janssen vaccine has been shown to be safe and effective in preventing severe COVID-19 illness, hospitalization, and death.

This third safe, effective COVID-19 vaccine comes at a potentially pivotal time. CDC’s latest data suggest that recent declines in COVID-19 cases may be stalling and potentially leveling off at still very high numbers. That is why it is so critical to remain vigilant and consistently take all of the mitigation steps we know work to stop the spread of COVID-19 while we work our way toward mass vaccination.
