There’s now a third vaccine available for you to consider. It’s the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Unlike the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, the Johnson & Johnson one requires one shot, not two. Regardless, all three available COVID-19 vaccines reduce deaths, hospitalizations, symptoms and transmission. Still, remember - the choice is yours and an informed choice is the best choice!
Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) Vaccine
Out of an abundance of caution, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have paused the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to rare blood clots in six cases involving women, out of more than 7.2 million shots given. Call your doctor if you have concerns or if you have these symptoms within 3 weeks of getting the vaccine: headache, stomach pain, leg pain, shortness of breath (trouble breathing). For more information, read the joint press release from the CDC and FDA. Click here.
