Gov. DeWine Advises Pause On Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine In Ohio
Ohio Gov. DeWine along with health department officials are advising all Ohio vaccine providers to temporarily pause using the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine.
This comes after a statement today by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to pause the use of the J&J vaccine over some health concerns. Six women in the U.S. developed rare blood-clots following vaccination.
The Ohio State University released its own statement about the pause of the J&J vaccine.
The statement says the Wexner Medical Center “has put an immediate hold on all Johnson & Johnson appointments. No Johnson & Johnson doses were scheduled to be administered today, Tuesday, April 13, and the Wexner Medical Center will make decisions about the administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine based on additional guidance from the CDC and FDA.”
