Why you shouldn't wait for the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine

  • Published on:  3/31/2021
  • Many people are getting vaccinated now. Research shows that some people are holding out for that one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine. While it might seem easier and faster, you could be waiting a while.

    One and done seems really tempting when it comes to the vaccine, but it's probably not a good personal vaccination strategy. Experts have said it for months - don't be picky. Take any vaccine you can get, when you can get it.

    Right now, the two-shot Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are overwhelmingly easier to get around Charlotte.

    Numbers here in North Carolina show why. The state received 460,000 vaccines last week. Of those, only 11, 500 were the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine. That's about 2 percent of all vaccines last week. #WakeUpCLT#COVID19
