The U.S. government is telling AstraZeneca to find another place to manufacture its COVID vaccine after the plant the company currently uses ruined 15 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The government has now put J&J in charge of the Baltimore facility. AstraZeneca is being pushed out in order to avoid any future mix-ups.

AstraZeneca's vaccine has not been approved in the U.S. and the company says it's working with the U.S. to figure out a new place for manufacturing.

Johnson & Johnson says it will still be able to deliver 100 million doses of its vaccine to the U.S. by the end of May.
