Johnson and Johnson Covid vaccine

I have decided the Johnson and Johnson vaccine for Covid 19 will be the best choice for me.
Does anyone know if it will be available in Switzerland?
I wrote to J&J and had no response.
They have it in Germany but you need a German health insurance card.
TIA

How on earth do you know J&J is "the best choice" for you? Are you a vaccines expert? Or just prefer one jab? J&J's appears less efficacious

Just get vaccinated - it's free!

And it has same blood clot issues as AZ - not that that would bother me, but seems odd to pick it over others!

Re: Johnson and Johnson Covid vaccine

wow , interesting. So why some smartbums are smarter than other smartbums??

ABfab how come you know better than the OP ?? seriously ?

The OP probably read a lot ,asked a lot , and finds how they preferr the vax to be a disabled adenovirus . It can’t replicate in your body and will not give you a viral infection and no risk of the spike protein going crazy.

Therefore, this person prefers the old school vax than the new mRna technology.

AZ is the old skool vac. As per current documentation, https://www.bag.admin.ch/bag/en/home...html#428181865

AZ is expected to be approved shortly

Don't know about Germany but I'm sure if you shop around you will find clinics who dispense without a health insurance card. I've seen it in Hungary for example. It is after all in their interest to vaccinate as many people as possible and creating barriers to that doesn't really make much sense.

I don't think getting the jab will be the biggest problem. The bigger problem will be getting a Swiss certificate for it.

Re: Johnson and Johnson Covid vaccine

Rastapopulus , same with Janssen from J&J .

I think J&J vaccine is available in france so maybe that's an option? I think now that EMA has approved that vaccine it'll be accepted in all countries..

Re: Johnson and Johnson Covid vaccine

So can some of you people here see how people are behaving (for no reason) like obedient zombies? someone says "I want that vacc or this vacc" and that's not 'acceptable' so some zombies are ready to lynch the person

And why? just because of bureaucracy , because of the fear talk in the media because of the constant "go vax don't ask" just stay in the line..

They do a terrific dandruff shampoo. Clearly a no-brainer that they would have the best vaccine for OP.

Probably for about the same reason you troll every vaccine post?

No, I think they are part of the conspiracy to hide the fact that there is a cure for dandruff. Dandruff doesn’t kill, so why provide the cure and kill their multi billion shampoo business?
