The FDA in April halted operations at Emergent's production facility after J&J's vaccine was found to be contaminated with material from AstraZeneca's COVID-19 shots, which were also being manufactured there at the time.

Koike was previously hospitalized in l
As any student of government will tell you, there are traditional levers of power in Ottawa: Finance, Foreign Affairs and Defence. They constitute the power to spend and make economic policy, the power to manage the country's image abroad and the power to defend ourselves in a time of crisis.
