‘One and done!’ Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine is back at NJ clinics

New Jersey is expected to receive a shipment of over 20,000 J&J vaccines next week

While skeptics remain, New Jersey is welcoming Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine back into the mix less than a week after federal health officials decided the benefits outweighed the risks associated with rare blood clots.

Officials who expected push-back reported “not much at all.” And people who lined up Wednesday at a Trenton pop-up clinic said they were eager to get the single-dose Johnson & Johnson jab. New Jersey is expected to receive a shipment of more than 20,000 Johnson & Johnson vaccines next week.
