Maryland could get J&J COVID-19 vaccine in week to come

The single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine will help speed up the process to getting people vaccinated, and state officials said Maryland could see the new vaccine in the state as early as next week. On Saturday, the Food and Drug Administration gave emergency use authorization to the J&J vaccine , which is the first-ever single-dose vaccine for the coronavirus available in the United States, and the third vaccine, following Pfizer and Moderna.
