DOVER, Del. (AP) — The state of Delaware has received 8,000 doses of the newly approved Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine.

The Delaware State News reported Tuesday that the one-dose inoculation is expected to be administered starting this weekend.  State health officials are sending out invitations to its waiting list for vaccination events on Saturday and Sunday.

These events will be by appointment only.

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is the third federally approved vaccine. But it’s the first to be one dose. The previous two, Pfizer and Moderna, are two-dose vaccines. State health officials say that all are effective and that people should take the first vaccine that becomes available.
