U.S. Receives 3.2 Million Novavax COVID-19 Vaccines

 Protein-based vaccine is waiting for FDA approval and CDC recommendation.

This week, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced they have received 3.2 million doses of Novavax’s COVID-19 vaccine. Unlike Pfizer and Moderna’s vaccines, which uses messenger RNA to prevent disease, the Novavax vaccine is protein-based, using a nanomodified version of the spiked coronavirus itself to stimulate the immune response necessary to prevent future infections of COVID-19.

“While more than two-thirds of the American public are already fully vaccinated, we must maintain a sense of urgency to ensure all eligible individuals get vaccinated, particularly heading into the Fall,” said HHS Coordination Operations and Response Element Chief Operating Officer Jason Roos. “This latest vaccine would offer people another choice to help protect themselves from severe disease or hospitalization caused by COVID-19.”
