Don’t make too much of the news that Johnson & Johnson’s (JNJ) COVID-19 vaccines will be temporarily taken offline while authorities investigate six cases of blood clotting—one of which, news reports claim, killed a 45-year old Virginia woman. President Biden said Tuesday that there is still “enough vaccine—that is 100% unquestionable—for every single solitary American,” though he should have clarified to say “every adult American,” given that vaccines for children have yet to be approved. The bottom line is that vaccinations are rolling along—3.38 million doses a day were given on average over the past seven days—bringing the number of Americans who have been fully vaccinated as of Monday morning to 74 million, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
