NEW: The J&J coronavirus vaccine is much less effective against Delta and Lambda variants than against the original virus, acc to a new study -- suggesting the 13 mil people who got it should get a second dose, ideally one of the mRNA vaccines. nytimes.com/2021/07/20/hea…

For months I have been advocating for CDC and FDA to issue guidance on second doses for the millions of people who got the single dose J&J vaccine. Now we have more data. I urge them to act. The delta variant doesn't respect one dose. nytimes.com/2021/07/20/hea…

The CDC needs to prioritize answering the question of whether the 13 million people vaccinated with J&J need a booster. nytimes.com/2021/07/20/hea…
