WATCH: Which COVID-19 vaccine is the best option for me?

There are three COVID-19 vaccines authorized for emergency use by the Food and Drug Administration, and experts say any kind of protection is better than none. Some people have expressed concern that the single-dose vaccine from Johnson & Johnson is 72-percent effective at preventing COVID-19 infection in the U.S, according to clinical data, a lower efficacy rate than the two-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. Dr. Kimberly Manning of Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta told PBS NewsHour Senior Correspondent Amna Nawaz that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is still very good at preventing infection, and that which vaccine you get is less important than getting one, period; any will help “protect yourself and your loved ones,” Grady said. Whether Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson or any vaccine that the FDA has authorized, “get the one that is in front of you,” Manning added.
