Today’s update will focus on the Johnson & Johnson one-shot vaccine coming to New Jersey.
Let’s jump right in.
On Friday, the FDA unanimously voted to recommend approval of the Johnson & Johnson’s one-shot vaccine for usage in adults, according to northjersey.com.
New Jersey is set to receive 70,000 doses of the one-shot vaccine in the coming week, northjersey.com continued.
This would be the country’s third COVID-19 vaccine if the FDA approves it for emergency use authorization purposes, according to nj.com.
“Simply having a third tool in our toolbox is critical,” Murphy continued.
There were 3,869 new positive COVID-19 tests in New Jersey from yesterday to today, with 523 new cases in Bergen County.
