Johnson & Johnson submitted their request for an EUA to the FDA yesterday.  I haven't yet found the data they submitted, but I'm sure it will be available soon.
Press Release
Quote:Vaccine Candidate 72% Effective in the US and 66% Effective Overall at Preventing Moderate to Severe COVID-19, 28 Days after Vaccination

85% Effective Overall in Preventing Severe Disease and Demonstrated Complete Protection Against COVID-19 related Hospitalization and Death as of Day 28

Protection Against Severe Disease Across Geographies, Ages, and Multiple Virus Variants, including the SARS-CoV-2 Variant from the B.1.351 Lineage[1] Observed in South Africa

I also note that back in October they indicated they were going to start trials on 12-18yo.   That's good as maybe that will be ready to get permission for that.

The ACIP's next meeting is scheduled Feb. 24-25.
I believe I read that the approval committee will meet on FEb 26 for J&J EAU.   I do continue to worry that perfection is getting in the way of effectiveness on these approvals.  And not only on this vaccine, but also the Astra Zeneca/Oxford.
