J&J asks US regulators to OK its one-shot COVID-19 vaccine

first_imgJohnson & Johnson has asked U.S. regulators to clear the world’s first single-dose COVID-19 vaccine, an easier-to-use option that could boost scarce supplies. Preliminary results from a massive study showed J&J’s vaccine was safe and offered strong protection against moderate to severe COVID-19. It didn’t appear quite as strong as two-dose competitors made by Pfizer and Moderna. Johnson & Johnson filed an application with the Food and Drug Administration on Thursday. An FDA panel will meet later this month and pore over the results. The company also is studying a two-dose version of its vaccine, but results won’t be available for several more months.last_img read more

Student reports assault

first_imgNotre Dame Security Police (NDSP) is investigating a sexual assault that occurred on campus over the weekend, according to an email sent to students Wednesday afternoon. The reported sexual assault occurred in a dorm during the early hours of Sunday morning, police said. The victim knew the person who allegedly committed the assault. “Sexual assault can happen to anyone,” the email stated. “College students are more likely to be assaulted by an acquaintance than a stranger. This means that the person perpetrating the assault could be part of the campus community.” In the email, NDSP reminded students to be aware of their safety and watch out for friends to reduce the chances of a sexual assault. Information about sexual assault prevention and resources for survivors or sexual assault can be found online with both NDSP and the Committee for Sexual Assault Prevention, the email stated.last_img read more
