US President Joe Biden confirmed Wednesday that he would order an additional 100 million doses of Johnson & Johnson’s Kovid-19 vaccine. The Pharmaceutical Immunizer received authorization for emergency use in the country at the end of February.
The head of the White House said, “A lot can happen. A lot can change. We need to be prepared.” In response to a press question, Biden said the US would have shared the vaccine with other countries if there was a surplus.
This afternoon Biden attended an event with the CEO of Johnson & Johnson & Merck Sharp & Doh (MSD). The two pharmaceutical companies have formed a partnership to accelerate the production and distribution of Jammu and Kashmir in the United States. “We need the cooperation of companies to defeat coronovirus,” the Democrat said.
The US government will financially support the production of vaccines through the Production Defense Act. The White House leader celebrated the approval of the $ 1.9 trillion tax package in Congress on Wednesday, saying the funds would help with vaccination and reopening of schools. He said, “There is a lot of hope. There is light at the end of the pandemic tunnel.”
