The first deliveries of Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine are expected soon after the CDC gave it the thumbs up for distribution. A panel for the agency voted to recommend the single-dose shot for use in the U.S. just days after the FDA granted emergency use authorization.

Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine is the first single dose COVID vaccine on the market. In trials, it proved slightly less effective than the two-dose vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna, but it still greatly protects people from severe complications from the respiratory illness.
