California expecting almost 90% drop in Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines next week – KGO-TV
BERKELEY, Calif. (KGO) — At the very moment we need more vaccines, California is about to see a major drop in doses from Johnson & Johnson — not just a few hundred or even few thousand doses, we’re talking about an almost 90% drop.
We will also see an 85% drop in Johnson & Johnson vaccine doses nationwide. Instead of the nearly 5 million doses the government sent out this week, next week the government will only send out 785,500.
Johnson & Johnson said last week one of their batches did not meet their standards. The New York Times reported workers mixed up ingredients, ruining 15 million doses.
