Germany to lift prioritisation for J&J COVID-19 vaccine

- Germany is lifting the prioritisation for giving Johnson & Johnson's JNJ.N COVID-19 vaccine, Health Minister Jens Spahn said on Monday, adding that any adult who wants it will be able to receive the shot on a doctor's advice.

Europe's drug regulator backed J&J's vaccine last month after examining cases of a rare blood clotting issue in U.S. adults who received a dose. But it left it up to the European Union's member states to decide how to use it. nL1N2MD1B7
