image for Fauci urges Americans to get any of the three COVID-19 vaccines available

“All three of them are really quite good, and people should take the one that’s most available to them.

If you go to a place and you have J&J, and that’s the one that’s available now, I would take it,” Fauci said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”.

The U.S. government authorized Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose COVID-19 vaccine on Saturday, making it the third to be available in the country following ones from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna.

Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines showed higher efficacy rates in trials that used two doses versus J&J’s single-shot vaccine.

Fauci said studies are now underway to determine their effectiveness and safety for children under 18, who are less likely to get sick from the virus.

President Joe Biden has said there should be enough supply to vaccinate all Americans by the end of July.

Daily infections have declined dramatically since their January peak, and some states have begun to loosen restrictions on public gatherings. »

Failing to do one or the other means the $15 minimum wage increase dies.

It has been written and said that the gambit failed because the Senate parliamentarian ruled that including the minimum wage increase would violate reconciliation rules.

These female villains are introduced in two dimensions—quite literally, in many cases.
