Decision on Resuming J&J Vaccinations May Come This Week

2 min read

www.cbsnews.com/…

Dr. Anthony Fauci said he expects a decision from the FDA will come this week on whether to resume vaccinations with the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, though it may come with some limitations in use. Vaccinations with the J&J shots were paused while reports of serious but vary rare blood clots were investigated.

Vaccinations using the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna doses are continuing at a good clip with 50.4% of adult Americans receiving at least one jab as of yesterday. Some 81% of Americans over the age of 65 have received at least one injection.

Looking at the total US, including children, 39.5% of the population have received at least one injection, and that should reach 40% by Monday. If we can maintain the current pace, 50% of the total US could be vaccinated by about May 3 and 60% about May 20th. The rate of vaccinations could pick up some if the FDA approves the Pfizer vaccine for 12  to 15 year old juveniles.

Attitudes Toward Vaccinations Are Improving

The states with the highest vaccination rates have a history of voting Democratic and supporting President Joe Biden in the 2020 election: New Hampshire at the top, with 71.1%, followed by New Mexico, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Maine, CDC data show…

Nationwide, 24% of Black Americans and 22% of Hispanic Americans say they will probably or definitely not get vaccinated, down from 41% and 34% in January, respectively. Among white Americans, 26% now say they will not get vaccinated. In January, that number was 31%.
