The Food and Drug Administration last week authorized extending from nine to 11 months the shelf life for refrigerated Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine stored at 2-8 degrees Celsius (about 36-46 degrees Fahrenheit), based on data submitted by the company. 

The agency also authorized for emergency use two new over-the-counter COVID-19 tests. The Rapid SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Test Card and OHC COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test are serial tests intended for use two times over three days and provide results in about 15 minutes. For more on the tests, see the fact sheets for health care providers.
