Which COVID vaccine is best?
Whichever one you can get soonest!
The J&J vaccine is an important and effective weapon that is most welcome in the fight against COVID-19.
Unlike the other vaccines that are currently approved for use, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a one-dose vaccine and can be stored with normal refrigeration. That makes the new vaccine more versatile and easier to administer than the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. All three vaccines are highly effective at preventing serious illness or death from COVID.
