We’ve heard from many of you, asking about the new Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine that was recently approved by the FDA for emergency use and that will soon be distributed here in Pennsylvania.

The following chart, from our friends at Charlotte Lozier Institute, is a great resource on these issues.
