The Johnson & Johnson vaccine can be used in countries where the mutated virus variants are spreading, the World Health Organization (WHO) stated on Wednesday.

The vaccine, which can be given to people over the age of 17, has proven to have an effect in countries where variants of the coronavirus spread, according to the leader of the WHO’s vaccine expert group SAGE, Alejandro Cravioto.

Thus, the vaccine is also recommended in countries where the mutated virus variants are beginning to take over.

The WHO recently approved the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine. The vaccine, also called the Janssen vaccine, requires only one dose.
