CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - The Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine has now cleared a major hurdle.

The FDA has ruled it is safe and effective.

Trials show the vaccine dramatically helps your chances from getting sick from COVID-19.

The vaccine requires only one dose and can be kept at warmer temperatures.

With the hope of a new vaccine on the horizon, you might be asking, when will the Johnson & Johnson vaccine begin rolling out?

The answer is very soon. If Emergency Use Authorization is granted, 3 to 4 million doses could be shipped out next week.

That means full vaccinations could happen immediately.
