3/2 CDC Webinar: What Clinicians Need to Know about the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine
On February 27, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. Shortly after, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended this first single-shot vaccine for individuals 18 years of age and older. This vaccine uses a non-replicating viral vector platform, and has been found to be safe and effective.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will host a Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA) call on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 to educate providers on the latest vaccine.
