The U.S. Food and Drug administration found the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine is safe and effective and meets the emergency use authorization requirements. If authorized, it’ll be the third shot option in the United States. Dr. Leana Wen is the former Baltimore Health Commissioner and is currently an emergency room physician. She also has been a volunteer participant in the two-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine trial. She joins AC360 to react to the FDA’s analysis. Plus, authorities say Tiger Woods won’t face any charges after his rollover car crash because it was “purely an accident.” CNN Correspondent Kyung Lah gives AC360 an update on the golfer’s condition and the crash investigation.
