By now you have probably heard a great deal of talk about which COVID-19 vaccine is best to get, with the general consensus being to get whichever shot is first available to you. But, Dr. Tony Mills says there are a number of benefits to the single-dose COVID vaccine.
The founder of the Men’s Health Organization tells The Doctors his organization has been working closely with Johnson & Johnson on a clinical trial of their vaccine and to help administer the vaccine to as many people as possible. He explains a vaccine that only requires a single shot can help address some of the health equity problems that exist in Los Angeles County and elsewhere around the country, where people who are economically disadvantaged often do not receive the same level of healthcare -- particularly when it comes to COVID.
He calls the COVID vaccine "the light" at the end of the pandemic and shares he is working hard to encourage those who are vaccine-hesitant to get the shot, and the Johnson & Johnson version eliminates the need for a follow-up shot and could be a great option who those hesitant individuals or for people who may not have access to routine healthcare.
Dr. Mills says all 3 vaccines are "equally effective and amazing vaccines," but with the Johnson & Johnson shot, he says with only 1 dose "We can get that level of protection we need," which can save lives and stop the spread of the virus.
"The right vaccine is the one that is in the syringe headed to your arm," Dr. Hills tells The Doctors. He also notes the one-shot vaccine, like both of the 2-dose vaccines", are well-tolerated and incredibly safe.
As for the COVID vaccines being tested on adolescents and children, he notes it is very common for a vaccine to be tested on these age groups, and says a COVID vaccine for younger people may be available in the fall of 2021.
