(Washington, DC) -- New data shows the U.S. will allot nearly 85-percent less Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine next week. A report from Reuters says new data from the CDC shows only 785-thousand doses will be allocated next week, compared to nearly five-million doses this week. The Department of Health and Human Services has not commented on the vaccine reduction. Last week, the New York Times said a vaccine plant in Baltimore had ruined about 15-million doses of Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The drugmaker has said it expects to deliver 100-million doses to the government by the end of May.
