Now, 3.9 million doses of the third US Covid-19 vaccine are making their way across the country. The J&J vaccine is different than the other two because it only requires one dose. Which should you get? Dr. Anthony Fauci says, "I would take whatever vaccine would be available to me as quickly as possible." Today, Mexico's President is expected to ask President Biden about the US possibly sharing its vaccine supply. Mexico has several purchase agreements with drug makers, but many have gone unfulfilled. Meanwhile, more than 2,400 cases of the UK, Brazil and South Africa coronavirus variants have been detected in the US, and the CDC warns the actual number could be much higher."
The coronavirus pandemic has brought countries to a standstill. Meanwhile, vaccinations have already started in some countries as cases continue to rise. Follow here for the latest.
