The Food and Drug Administration granted emergency use authorization to Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine on Saturday.

The vaccine will be the first to require only one shot, instead of two. It has shown to be around 67 percent effective, but experts have said the practical efficacy of the vaccine is practically the same as the other approved shots.

About four million doses are expected to be shipped starting on Monday.

Johnson & Johnson expects to provide 20 million doses by the end of March, with another 100 million by summer.
