I got my covid-19 vaccination today, through my employer. It was the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, and while it may a little less effective than the other currently available vaccines at preventing mild illness it is supposed to be at least as effective at preventing the more severe symptoms, hospitalization, and death. It will require about 4 weeks to become fully effective, but will require no second dose. All in all, a major step in the right direction! My father worked for J&J for about 40 years, at their facility in North Brunswick, New Jersey, so I like to think he might have been pleased of the role his long time employer played in hopefully breaking the back of this pandemic.
