WANT THE COVID-19 VACCINE?
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING J&J Vaccine as of 4/13/21:
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the CDC have issued a joint recommendation to pause administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. We will NOT be administering the J&J vaccine until further notice. The previously planned J&J clinic on Thursday, April 15th will be switched to use the Moderna vaccine. Please stay tuned for more information from our department as it becomes available.
More than 6.8 million doses of the J&J vaccine have been administered in the U.S. to date. CDC and FDA are reviewing data involving six reported U.S. cases of an extremely rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the J&J vaccine. We will be watching closely as the experts review the data and provide further guidance for vaccine providers. Read the whole FDA/CDC recommendation here: https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/joint-cdc-and-fda-statement-johnson-johnson-covid-19-vaccine
We will continue to provide the Moderna and Pfizer products at vaccine clinics. Click the button below for appointment availability.
