President Biden remarks on COVID-19 response and vaccination efforts (LIVE) | USA TODAY

President Joe Biden delivers remarks on the COVID-19 response and the vaccination program.

A federal advisory committee meeting today is expected to sign off on allowing one vaccine to go into adolescent arms – but states might not receive any doses of another vaccine next week.


White House officials told governors on a private call Tuesday that new supply of the Johnson & Johnson one-dose shot wasn’t immediately available for ordering, Politico reported, citing four sources it did not name. J&J’s vaccine output has been limited since its authorization in late February – and in April, federal health officials paused its use for 11 days after a rare blood-clotting disorder was associated with the shot.
