COVID-19: Johnson & Johnson's single-shot COVID vaccine recommended by EU drugs regulator

Johnson & Johnson's single-shot COVID vaccine has been recommended for conditional approval by the EU drugs regulator.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) said it should only be recommended for over-18s.

Authorisation for the vaccine will follow shortly, said the EU Commission.

The bloc has had a slow start in rolling out vaccines, with its president criticised for not acting fast enough.
