Due to mutation, new variants are coming into existence and a definite probability exists that some might eventually become resistant to the currently manufactured vaccine. Hence, it is important to realise how crucial it is that the vaccine reaches people as soon as possible. A senior Biden administration official recently announced that 3.9 million J&J vaccine doses would be distributed to states, pharmacies and community health centres also highlighting how the potential for expanded availability is there since the vaccine needs not to be kept in a freezer.
He further added that it’d be a onetime vaccine and people would not have to return to get a booster dose.
“The key point that needs to be emphasised here is that human to human transmission is not rare with these types of viruses.”
