Musk particularly highlighted the COVID-19 vaccine of Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ), but added that Pfizer Inc (NYSE: PFE) and its partner BioNTech SE ((NASDAQ: (BNTX))), and Moderna Inc (NASDAQ: MRNA) were “good too.”
According to Musk, the first shot is a “no-brainer.”
Why It Matters: Last month, Musk had taken the stance that there is debate around the second jab and there have been “quite a few negative reactions to that,” as per a tweet.
