Federally-supported sites to resume use of Johnson & Johnson vaccine

UPDATE 4/24/2021: All federally-supported sites such as Gateway Mall will resume use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

ORIGINAL STORY:

U.S. health agencies recommended a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine Tuesday, “out of an abundance of caution,” as officials investigate reports of blood clots.

Vaccination sites in the Jacksonville area are following the recommendation and have halted the use of the single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.
