President Biden said on Wednesday that he is calling for the government to acquire an additional 100 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine.

Unlike vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer that require two shots, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine only requires a single dose.

"If an agreement with J&J is completed, the additional supply would double the company's previous commitment to provide 100 million doses to the U.S.," according to the Wall Street Journal.
