Governor Kate Brown gets Johnson & Johnson vaccine

SCAPPOOSE, Ore. (AP) — Democratic Oregon Gov. Kate Brown received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine on Saturday and is encouraging others to get it.

Brown said she got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to demonstrate that it’s safe and effective, and to counter rumors and misinformation.

She also said the one-dose vaccine is more convenient than the two-dose requirements of other vaccines to protect against the coronavirus.

Oregon residents should feel safe getting any of the three vaccines currently available, she said.

More than a million doses of the various vaccines have been administered, she said, and 20,000 doses are being given each day.
