Johnson & Johnson believes that they can have 20 million vaccines available by the end of March 2021 and over 100 million vaccines available by the time the first half of 2021. According to Paul Stoffels, M.D., Vice Chairman of the Executive Committee and Chief Scientific Officer, Johnson & Johnson:

We believe the Johnson & Johnson single-shot COVID-19 vaccine is a critical tool for fighting this global pandemic, particularly as it shows protection across countries with different variants. A vaccine that protects against COVID-19, especially against the most dire outcomes of hospitalization and death, will help ease the burden on people and the strain on health systems worldwide."

Some Catholic leaders and organizations are against the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 shot based on the ways they claim that the vaccine was originated and are asking that if you have the ability to choose what vaccine you can get, do not choose the Johnson & Johnson option. According to NPR:

Unlike the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was produced in part through the use of cell lines derived from an aborted human fetus".
