PAMED COVID-19 Briefing:

On April 13, the Pennsylvania Department of Health notified all COVID-19 vaccine providers to pause administering doses of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine until at least April 20. Read DOH's press release here.
This comes after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are recommending a pause in the use of the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine out of an abundance of caution, following six reported U.S. cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving this vaccine.
Learn more here, including how treatment for these patients differs.
