U.S. regulators have officially approved the third COVID-19 vaccine, Johnson & Johnson.
The vaccine is set to be a cost-effective alternative to Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and can be stored in an ordinary refrigerator.
Evidence found that it prevented serious illness but was 66% effective overall when moderate cases were involved. The vaccine was made by the Belgian company "Janssen".
The company has agreed to provide US 100 million doses by the end of June. The first doses may be available to the American public as early as next week.
The UK, EU and Canada have also ordered doses, and 500 million doses have also been ordered through the Covax scheme to supply the poorest nations.
President Joe Biden hailed it as "exciting news for all Americans and an encouraging development," but warned that "the war is not over."
"While we celebrate the news, I urge all Americans to continue to wash their hands, stay out of society and continue to wear masks," he said in a statement.
"As I have said many times, things are likely to get worse again as new variants spread, and the current improvement may change."
