Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine trials are underway in Austin. Benchmark Research is running a clinical trial with 18 participants.
The vaccine requires a single shot, as opposed to the two-shot vaccines created by Pfizer and Moderna. It can also be stored in a regular fridge, and doesn’t require deep cold storage.
The Food and Drug Administration is expected to approve the new vaccine possibly as soon as this week, and it could be administered to the public by the end of this month.
