And more Fantastic news with that,  pharmaceutical rivals Johnson and Johnson and Merck are doing a joint venture for vaccine production. Pres Biden announced today that Merck would be assigning two manufacturing plants to J&J to produce their vaccine.

 

Biden says this means that there will be enough vaccine for every every adult by the end of May. That is a major accomplishment. 


That news made me so happy when I saw it. Wahoo! ****** the torpedoes everybody! This is what America can do.

I had Covid and experts have said that those who recovered might only need one shot.  Hearing that, I will wait for the J&J vaccine.  I like the idea that it's based on old vaccine technology and not the new (and not really tested) MRNa one.

My husband and I are getting our shots tomorrow 3/3/21.  I've been on a list with our Health Dept. since January and nothing.  After the Governor was on the air Monday and said we were getting more vaccines I called the hospital and we got an appointment for Wednesday.  I don't know which one but I don't care as long as I can get one.  Fill you in later.

Today on the news they said the new J and J vaccine had a moral component that Catholics would need to consider if they get it....what in the world does that mean?

At this point I'll take anything I can get!  I'm so tired of searching everyday, everywhere.

Some people have already received it.  It will be given out this weekend, where I live.  

One and done.  The group I volunteer with will give out 12,000 doses, sat-mon.   Still waiting for all the details!

That is great news @september!  The clinic I vollunteer for is giving Moderna and will not be getting the first round of J&J yet.  The decision was made to divert that vaccine out to the local pharmacies that are vaccinating.

 

They are expecting to add the J&J with the next shipment though.  So exciting to get more vaccine out there and get her rolling.

 

The J&J actually came through UPS Worldport yesterday so it is being shipped for sure.

 

So go get 'em & help get that vaccine out there!  Thank you for volunteering!  Heart

But the J & J has preservatives in it - the Moderna and Pfeizer do not. For someone who is allergic to "fillers and medications", the J & J might not be a good choice.
