UNISON’s health conference, held online today and tomorrow, is an important opportunity for health workers to discuss what’s important to them, and to use our union’s democracy to shape what we do next.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., September 13, 2021 – Data from two papers published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases demonstrated that the Johnson & Johnson (the Company) Ebola vaccine regimen, Zabdeno® (Ad26.ZEBOV) and Mvabea® (MVA-BN-Filo), generated robust humoral (antibody) immune responses in adults and children (ages 1-17) with the immune responses persisting in adults for at least two years.

Growing up in south Ulster, it was in regular use by young and old – “Sure, he’s great crack”; “Was there any crack in town last nig ht?”; “She’d go anywhere for a bit of crack”.
