Bad news for Johnson and Johnson vaccine

Bad news for Johnson and Johnson vaccine company and also people who were looking forward for Johnson and Johnson HIV Vaccine.

Few years ago, Johnson and Johnson had embarked on discovering a vaccine for HIV. In the world, there are millions of people living with HIV abd and since its discovery, there haven't any cure/medicine to heal this disease but only ARVs to boost immune system.

Hopes that Johnson and Johnson HIV Vaccine can help to heal HIV was shut down few days ago by a report back.

Reports shows that Johnson and Johnson HIV vaccine, based on the same tech as their successful COVID vaccine, only 25% effective.

Though the Johnson and Johnson HIV vaccine was found to be safe, with no serious side effects, its efficacy in preventing HIV infection was just over 25 percent.

Johnson & Johnson's highly anticipated HIV vaccine failed to demonstrate adequate protection in a clinical trial involving more than 2,600 young women in sub-Saharan Africa, the company and US health authorities said Tuesday.
