Johnson & Johnson Announces Plan to Pause Vaccine Production to Focus on More Profitable, Non-Covid Vax

The only Johnson & Johnson facility that is currently making the single-shot coronavirus vaccine announced it has halted production, at least temporarily. Based in the Netherlands, the plant will be focusing on a more profitable vaccine “aimed at a non-Covid virus” people familiar with the situation told the New York Times.

One source said the halt could reduce the supply of the vaccine by hundreds of millions of doses. CNBC reports that while it is unclear whether vaccine supplies have been affected by the decision, the J&J Leiden plant anticipates restarting production for the vaccination in March.

J&J spokesman Jake Sargent told CNBC in a statement that the company is “focused on ensuring our vaccine is available where people are in need” and added “we currently have millions of doses of our Covid-19 vaccine in inventory.”

CNBC writes how polls signify Americans are skeptical towards the J&J vaccine, which has been the only one approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. However, last year the FDA recommended pausing the use for J&J because of reports of recipients developing rare blood clots.

The fact that it was the only vaccine where one dose was needed instead of two made it initially more intriguing for people to get the vaccine. It also made transport and distribution easier as one dose can be stored without a freezer.

Will it ever end? On Tuesday this week China’s health authority recorded its first human infection of the H3N8 strain of avian influenza. The variant was identified in a 4-year-old boy from Henan province.

According to a statement from the National Health Commission (NHC) the child raises chickens and crows in his home city of Zhumadian. On April 5 he showed fever and other symptoms, then was admitted to a medical institution five days later for treatment.

The statement indicated while it has been found in horses, dogs, birds and seals around the world, no human cases have ever been reported. Fox News reports the commission “warned the public to avoid contact with sick and dead poultry, as well as live poultry, and pay attention to hygiene.”

In March, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) wrote highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses had been detected in 13 states among commercial and backyard poultry, as well as in wild birds of 14 states.

Fortunately, the agency said H5N1 bird flu poses a low risk to the public.
