Unlike Moderna and Pfizer requiring two doses, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires just one dose. The vaccine was found in clinical trials to have an efficacy of 66.3% in preventing COVID-19 infection, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And it prevented 100% of hospitalizations and deaths related to COVID-19.

The CDC does not recommend one vaccine over another and advises people to get the first vaccine available to them, according to the agency website.
