The Johnson & Johnson vaccine has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration and the company has started shipping out four million doses of the vaccine across America. Governor Andrew Cuomo said the state expected to receive approximately 164,800 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine this week.

Unlike the Modern and Pfizer vaccines, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a single-shot vaccine. It is unlikely those getting vaccinated will have a choice in the vaccine they receive, given the limited vaccine supply.

Interfaith Medical Center has more than 700 available doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine that must be used by Wednesday, June 3. No appointment is required to get the vaccine on Tuesday, March 2, and it is free. Click here to learn more.
