ReutersJohnson & & Johnson is scaling back shipments of its single-dose Covid-19 vaccine by 86% next week as it grapples with producing concerns at a significant plant in Baltimore.The government has designated only 700,000 J&J shots to states next week, down from 4.9 million the week prior, according to information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.J&& J is waiting for regulatory clearance for a Baltimore center, which is run by Emergent BioSolutions Inc, and is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to secure authorization.Workers at the Baltimore plant a number of weeks ago mixed up components for the J&J and AstraZeneca vaccines, which led to approximately 15 million destroyed J&J doses. The Biden administration has actually put J&J in charge of vaccine production at the plant and stopped production of the AstraZeneca vaccine there.Once it receives authorization, J&J could provide up to 8 million dosages each week, White House Covid-19 organizer Jeff Zients said throughout a press instruction on Friday. “After reviewing each patients symptoms, examining other vaccinations from the same lot of the vaccine and speaking with the CDC to confirm our findings, we are positive in stating that there is no reason for issue,” Dr. Eric France, the departments primary medical officer, said in a statement.The J&J vaccine was the third vaccine licensed in the U.S. after vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna. As of Friday evening, the company provided almost 15 million dosages in the U.S, according to CDC data.The U.S. is administering a seven-day average of 3 million vaccine doses each day.
