This vaccine candidate is a single-dose vaccine developed by Janssen Pharmaceutica, division of Johnson & Johnson based in Belgium. Last February 19, 2021, local clinical trials of the drug began in selected sites in Metro Manila, Calabarzon, and Western Visayas.
How it works: The Janssen vaccine is also adenovirus-based, like the Sputnik V. Like the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, it also carries genetic instructions for building spike proteins, but instead of using mRNA, the Janssen vaccine uses double-stranded DNA.
