Johnson & Johnson Seeks F.D.A. Approval for Covid Booster


Johnson & Johnson on Tuesday morning asked federal regulators to authorize a booster shot for adults, becoming the third coronavirus vaccine manufacturer to do so.

The company said that a second shot of its vaccine about two months after the first significantly boosts protection, to 94 percent, against moderate to severe disease.

The company submitted its findings in a request to the Food and Drug Administration to amend emergency use authorization of its vaccine to include a second injection. The agency has called a meeting of its expert advisory committee next week to discuss the issue.
