USA Today just noted that Johnson & Johnson released new data and this shows the fact that a booster dose of its vaccine given two months after the one-shot vaccine provides 94% protection against moderate-to-severe covid symptoms.
J&J cited three studies of the vaccine and said:
“the booster shot offers 100% protection against severe or critical symptoms.”
The firm also stated that a booster dose given six months after the single shot provides even more protection.
The same online publication that we mentioned above notes that the results are “in line with data from studies of Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines.”
“A single-shot COVID-19 vaccine that is easy to use, distribute and administer, and that provides strong and long-lasting protection is crucial to vaccinating the global population.”

He continued and explained:
“A booster shot further increases protection against COVID-19 and is expected to extend the duration of protection significantly.”
