German Health Minister Jens Spahn said on Monday that the country will make Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine available to all adults.
He added that they will be able to receive the shot on the advice of a doctor, and forecasting that 10 million doses of the J&J shot were expected to arrive in Germany by the end of the second quarter.
The European Medicines Agency backed J&J's vaccine last month after examining cases of a rare blood clotting issue in U.S. adults who received a dose. But it left it up to EU member states to decide how to use it.
Germany's move to offer the J&J single-dose vaccine follows the lifting of restrictions last week on the AstraZeneca vaccine.
