Is J&J still available?

J&J has quietly shut down all vaccine production. The plant in the Netherlands was shut down. It was the only location making usable doses of the vaccine. Read more about it here.

Some facilities, like the Dutch city of Leiden, have been experimenting with other ways to use the surplus vaccine. They are looking to make a more profitable vaccine that protects against an unrelated virus.

There are currently stockpiles of this COVID-19 vaccine available.

J&J did not confirm the planet closure. However, they did comment that, “we currently have millions of doses of our COVID-19 vaccine in inventory [and] we continue to fulfill our contractual obligations.”
