A new COVID-19 vaccine is almost here

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently granted emergency use authorization for the Johnson & Johnson (J&J), or Janssen, COVID-19 vaccine. The J&J vaccine is the third vaccine authorized for emergency use in the United States. It joins the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines in the fight against COVID-19. Its arrival will soon make an impact on our state’s supply.

So how does the J&J vaccine differ from others? And how will it impact our state’s distribution? Dive into the details in this blog post from the Washington State Department of Health.

Like the other vaccines, the demand currently exceeds the available supply. The J&J vaccine will help — but it may take several weeks to make a significant impact in Washington. The state expects to receive about 60,000 J&J doses this week with more to arrive later this month.
