Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Paused

Apr 13, 2021

Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Paused

Today the CDC and FDA issued a statement recommending a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine out of an abundance of caution as they review the use of the vaccine in the U.S. due to an extremely rare occurrence of a blood clot in several individuals.
 
Effective immediately, Cornerstone Family Healthcare will follow the recommendation made by the CDC, FDA and New York State Department of Health and pause the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine while these health and safety agencies evaluate next steps.
 
According to the CDC and FDA, these adverse events appear to be extremely rare. For people who have received the Johnson & Johnson shot within the last three weeks, please contact your health care provider and seek medical treatment if you have developed severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain or shortness of breath. These symptoms are different than the flu-like symptoms that many people receive after receiving the vaccine.
 
Please be advised that these rare adverse events are not being reported with the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. Millions of doses of both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines have been administered in the U.S. since December, and they continue to show safety and effectiveness. People scheduled to receive the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine should continue with those appointments.
 
We will provide more information as it becomes available. For specific questions regarding your health and vaccine safety, please contact your health care provider.
