UPDATE - Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine:

Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine: CDC and FDA have recommended that use of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen (J&J/Janssen) COVID-19 Vaccine resume in the United States, effective April 23, 2021. However, women younger than 50 years old should be aware of the rare risk of blood clots with low platelets after vaccination, and that other COVID-19 vaccines are available where this risk has not been seen. If you received a J&J/Janssen vaccine, here is what you need to know. Read the CDC/FDA statement.

J&J/Janssen Update

 

KEY THINGS TO KNOW:

  • COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.

  • You may have side effects after vaccination, but these are normal.

  • It typically takes two weeks after you are fully vaccinated for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus that causes COVID-19.

  • Vaccines have become widely available over the past few months. Find a COVID-19 vaccine.

  • People who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
