Nebraska Halting Johnson & Johnson Vaccinations


It has been reported today that the CDC is recommending states to halt the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after people developed blood clots. Six women, between the ages of 18 to 48, developed a "rare and severe" type of blood clot between 6 to 13 days after receiving the vaccine.

Several states are already stopping J&J vaccine distributions, and Nebraska has now been added to the list. The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services released a statement this morning in regards to the recent call to stop inoculations:

"Vaccine safety is closely monitored by healthcare providers and local, state, and federal partners. While only six instances of this severe clotting event have been identified among approximately 6.8 million who have received the J&J/Janssen vaccine across the US, the pause is a transparent and deliberate decision to allow time for a thorough review and investigation."
