Twelve thousand doses of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine arrived at the FEMA community vaccination center at NRG Park in Houston, Texas, on March 2.

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the single-dose vaccine, also known as the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, on Friday, February 27.

“Overall, the vaccine was approximately 67% effective in preventing moderate to severe/critical COVID-19 occurring at least 14 days after vaccination and 66% effective in preventing moderate to severe/critical COVID-19 occurring at least 28 days after vaccination,” the FDA said in a press release.

“Additionally, the vaccine was approximately 77% effective in preventing severe/critical COVID-19 occurring at least 14 days after vaccination and 85% effective in preventing severe/critical COVID-19 occurring at least 28 days after vaccination.”

A representative of the Harris County Public Health Department told Storyful that while the doses were initially delivered to NRG Park they would not be administered at that location. Harris County Public Health also said 6,000 of the doses would be handled by the Houston Health Department. Credit: Harris County Public Health via Storyful
