People who've had COVID-19 might only need one vaccine jab - and saving shots on them could free up millions of doses for others

Justin Tallis - Pool / Getty Images Some experts believe people who have had COVID-19 should get just one shot of two-dose coronavirus vaccines. This would give these people protection while freeing up vaccine doses for others, they say. However, other experts warn the approach could be logistically difficult and scientifically "risky."  Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories. Experts are divided on whether people who have already had COVID-19 need a full coronavirus vacci...

US coronavirus cases have dropped 70% in the last six weeks. Experts chalk it up to more immunity and better behavior.

Physician John Jones, tests administrative assistant Morgan Bassin for COVID-19 at One Medical in Scottsdale, Arizona, June 17, 2020. Courtney Pedroza/Reuters Average daily coronavirus cases in the US have fallen roughly 70% in the last six weeks.

How to know when you should double-mask, when one mask is enough, and which masks you should use
