COVID-19 Vaccines Info: Details on the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine

The latest COVID-19 vaccines information as of April 14, 2021

State and federal health officials have recommended that physicians and health facilities temporarily halt administering the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine following reports of blood clots in six patients nationwide.

Below are links to several online documents that explain the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the recommendation, and the adverse events that spurred it.

  • A Texas Department of State Health Services document answers questions such as:
    • Why is vaccination being paused with only six cases?
    • What should I do if I have received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine?
    • How long will this pause be in effect?
  • A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention health alert includes detailed recommendations for physicians regarding evaluation, testing, and treatment of patients experiencing thrombotic events following receipt of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
  • The Texas Medical Association has created a fact sheet – available in English and Spanish – you can use to explain to patients the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines.
