Johnson and Johnson (J&J) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Alex Gorsky (pictured) expressed on Wednesday his belief that people will need to receive additional doses of vaccines against COVID-19 along with the one against seasonal flu for the next several years.

Speaking at the Wall Street Journal's Tech Health conference, Gorsky stated such actions will be necessary as long as it is needed to achieve long-term herd immunity.

Earlier this week, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, warned that, although the government's goal of having 70% people of the country's population by Independence Day is achievable, "July 4th is not the end of it."
