Ministers hope that Janssenjab can be deployed as a “jab and go” offering among young adults born at the turn of the century.
Those who receive the AstraZeneca vaccine, which is considered the mainstay of government vaccination, should be vaccinated with two jabs at 12-week intervals before being fully vaccinated.
Janssenjab hopes to be attractive to young people who are anxious to start enjoying the summer by the time the vaccine rolls out.
