When will Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine recipients get a booster?

“Based on our experience with the J&J vaccine, I wouldn’t choose to get a second dose of the J&J vaccine,” says Phil Felgner, director of the UCI Vaccine Research and Development Center [and the Protein Microarray Laboratory and Training Facility]. “Because there are other components of that J&J vaccine that we react to, and produce an immune response.”
