The State of NH has paused administration of the Johnson & Johnson (J & J) vaccine due to rare instances of blood clotting, which occurred in six people in the U.S. who had received the J & J vaccine. Read the CDC/FDA statement here. Per the CDC:
Individuals receiving the J & J vaccine:
- For people who got the vaccine more than a month ago, the risk to them is very low at this time.
- For people who recently got the vaccine—within the last few weeks—they should be aware of any symptoms.
- If you have received the vaccine and develop severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath, they should contact their healthcare provider and seek medical treatment.
- Importantly, there are three vaccines available. We are not seeing these events with the other two vaccines, Moderna and Pfizer.
