How The Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine is Administered
Unlike other vaccines, the Johnson COVID-19 vaccine requires only one dose. It’s administered through an intramuscular injection in the deltoid muscle. In other words, you will get the shot through your shoulder.
The Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine is a viral vector vaccine. That means that it uses a benign virus to deliver a gene to your cells. The gene then informs your cells how to produce a particular antigen, also known as a spike protein. That antigen tells the body to produce antibodies, which provokes the immune system to action.
There’s no threat of illness because of the vaccine. You also won’t have to worry about COVID-like symptoms after getting your dose.
