The FDA issued emergency use authorization for Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine over the weekend, and the Biden administration says it could start arriving today. There’s a sense of optimism in LA County, which is now looking at pre-winter surge numbers. The seven-day positivity rate is about 3%, which is the lowest since the early days of the pandemic.
