Got Johnson & Johnson? A 2nd shot provides excellent protection, studies show
One shot of Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine seems to be less effective than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine
Adding a second shot six months after the first, however, boosted effectiveness against symptomatic infection to 94%
Johnson and Johnson, citing three studies, says booster shots offer 100% protection against severe disease.
Giving boosters after six months provided even more protection, the company said on Tuesday.
The results are in line with data from studies of Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines.
