The Food and Drug Administration authorized Johnson & Johnson’s one-dose COVID-19 vaccine on Feb. 27. With three vaccines now in circulation in the U.S., Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is urging Americans who wonder which vaccine they should get to take whichever vaccine is “most available to them.”
“All three of them are really quite good, and people should take the one that’s most available to them,” he said. “If you go to a place and you have J&J and that’s the one that’s available now, I would take it. I personally would do the same thing. I think people need to get vaccinated as quickly and as expeditiously as possible.”
The vaccine from Johnson & Johnson differs from those developed by Pfizer and Moderna in that it requires only a single dose. Both of the previously approved vaccines require two doses, taken between 21-28 days apart.
