Here’s what one trader on StockTwits recently had to say in regards to JNJ:

    $JNJ I have a question for the J&J vaccine followers. I have an opportunity to participate in their phase 3 trial. I have tried to find the specifics of their Ad26.COV2.S online and have had trouble finding specifically how the vaccine works. Is it mRNA based like Moderna or does it simply introduce the spike protein into the cells for the body to mount an immune response similar to existing flu vaccines? I have found that often investors through their DD know more about how their vaccines work than most others! If it uses a mechanism similar to prior flu vaccines then I am all in, but if this is a new vaccine technique like Modern or AstraZeneca then I am more hesitant. Thanks in advance!

    What would you all do? Would you participate in the study to potentially get the vaccine early?
