Use of the J&J vaccine has been paused as the CDC reviews reports of a rare, severe type of blood clot in six people who have received the vaccine in the U.S. Nearly 7 million people in the U.S. have received the J&J vaccine to date.
In the meantime, we’ll continue to bring COVID-19 vaccine to everyone who is eligible in Pierce County. We will not use Johnson & Johnson vaccine while CDC and the FDA investigate the reports. Planned vaccination events that had Johnson & Johnson will now have Moderna.
If you got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and develop symptoms—such as severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath—within three weeks after vaccination, contact your healthcare provider.
