U.S. FDA asks J&J to discard millions of COVID-19 vaccine doses

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration on Friday said Johnson & Johnson must throw away millions of doses of its COVID-19 vaccine that were manufactured at a problem-plagued Baltimore factory but also cleared millions for use.

Two sources familiar with the situation told Reuters that the agency had cleared about 10 million doses. The New York Times said that the batches being discarded amount to around 60 million doses, citing people familiar with the matter.

Without disclosing or confirming the number of vaccine doses, the FDA said in a news release that it had authorized two batches of the vaccine for use, that several other batches were not suitable for use and that others were being evaluated.

The agency said it was not yet ready to authorize Emergent BioSolutions Inc's plant for manufacturing the J&J vaccine. Production of J&J's vaccine at the Baltimore site was halted by U.S. authorities in April and J&J was put in charge of manufacturing at the plant.

One source familiar with the matter told Reuters that the J&J doses are expected to be exported to other countries. The doses are already in vials and ready for use, the other source said.

Safety concerns about the J&J vaccine paired with flagging U.S. demand for vaccinations in general have slowed rollout of the one-shot vaccine to a crawl. Close to half of the 21 million doses produced for the United States sit unused.

Democrats lied all last year about the vaccine so many won't get it, and now they are throwing out millions of doses.

You love to repeat this bunk, MM. Biden was elected, much of the reason for that being that he was seen by Americans as better equipped to fight the virus than Trump. Biden got his vaccine in public while Trump did it behind doors and wouldn't even acknowledge he got it for a while.

Look at the percentage of States as far as those taking the vaccine is concerned, then look at those at the bottom of the list with the lowest percentage. They're all Trump Red, MM.

States ranked by percentage of COVID-19 vaccines administered: June 11
