State/County pause use of Johnson & Johnson vaccine

As of April 13, and based on recommendations from the CDC and U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Arizona Department of Health Services  recommended a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine.

The pause comes after six reported U.S. cases, out of 6.8 million doses administered nationally, of a rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

People who have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine who develop severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within three weeks after vaccination should contact their health care provider.
