16 is the lowest authorized age for the Pfizer vaccine. Moderna and J&J are 18.


Easy for Alaska, they can just leave the vaccines outside

I really hope I don't have to wait until the second half of this year to get vaccinated.

Axios

President Biden will announce on Wednesday afternoon that he has directed his administration to purchase an additional 100 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine, according to a senior administration official.

Why it matters: Biden's goal is to secure enough supply to vaccinate children and — if necessary — administer booster shots to increase protection against new variants of the virus, according to the New York Times.

The announcement comes a week after the president said the U.S. will have enough vaccines available for 300 million adults by the end of May.

Unlike Pfizer and Moderna's vaccines, the J&J shot only requires one dose. The U.S. government had previously purchased 100 million doses from the company.

The state of play: The doses are expected to be delivered in the second half of the year, two officials told the Times.

Biden will make the announcement Wednesday afternoon during his meeting in the White House with the CEOs of Johnson & Johnson and Merck.

The Biden administration said last week that the two rival pharmaceutical companies would be teaming up to boost supply of J&J's one-shot vaccine.

We shouldn’t have to. I think this extra purchase is probably setting up for booster shots

There will be enough Pfizer and Moderna for every adult by the end of May.

I am bullish on summer and fall.

Unfortunately nobody told Mayor Bowser.

I'm anxious for both me and my mom to get our vaccines, too. My mom is so close, too-she just turned 64 last December. She's just outside of the 65 and older group.

So yeah, the quicker we can move to making sure every single adult can get vaccinated as soon as possible, the more relieved I'll be.

Sorry to hear that, Irving.

(my mom got severe asthma when I was 5 1/2 , eventually moderated with a (back then) suitcase size nebulizer, and later quite damped down with better meds)

Yours nay not be similar but I've seen the struggle.

I’m curious what the J&J stats are towards the same cases.

We know that J&J went up against the SA variant and that caused some dip in the vaccine protection, and that was only regarding mild cases.

It’s hard not to read these things about the moderna and Pfizer vaccines and think why would you want any other ?

You'd want the other because it reduces your already crazy slim chances of catching this thing by anywhere from 60 to 90 percent depending on the mutation and can do so without sub zero temperatures and in one shot, and prevents death and hospitalization by over 99%, making this thing milder than Gzus' flu.

I received Moderna because that's what they gave me. I'd have zero issues if they gave me J&J. The differences are miniscule.

I was kinda pissed off that DC sign up (opened yesterday) asked the question of which vaccine you "prefer"

way to set a tone, folks

I'm glad that I got Pfizer because their t-cell data is thorough, suggesting that immunity from it could be long-lasting. That being said, I would have been pleased to receive Moderna as well. The efficacy looks great either way.

Vaccine shopping strikes me as really out there given that literally nobody asks what flu shot they are getting each year, what the efficacy is and so on. Nor is this question asked about any other vaccine on the market seemingly.

Another failure of leadership - anyone who wants to get back to "normal" whatever that is, should be in favour of getting whatever they are offered first.

It's very likely that everyone may have to get boosters (God forbid annually) and this nonsense of 95% vs 94% has to end.

Biden is going to direct states to open up vaccine availability to all adults by May 1st, in his speech tonight.
