Temporary Pause in the Use of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine
“The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US Food and Drug Administration, out of an abundance of caution, are recommending that the United States pause in the use of Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine, after six reported US cases of a “rare and severe” type of blood clot. The six reported cases were among more than 6.8 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine administered in the United States. All six cases occurred among women between the ages of 18 and 48, and symptoms occurred 6 to 13 days after vaccination.
Patients who have received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine within the last 2 weeks should watch for symptoms that include the following: leg pain or swelling, redness in the calf area, chest pain, severe headache, and/or shortness of breath. Report any of these symptoms to your personal health care provider right away or go to the emergency room if symptoms are severe. Unless patients are experiencing these symptoms, there is no need to contact their personal health care provider.”
We will continue to update our website to include information on future vaccination clinics, expanded hours and updates.
