|CDC and FDA have recommended a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine in the United States out of an abundance of caution, effective Tuesday, April 13. Of the 6.8 million Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine doses administered in the United States to date, six cases of a type of blood clot called “cerebral venous sinus thrombosis” (CVST) were seen in combination with low levels of blood platelets (thrombocytopenia). CDC will convene a meeting of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) on Wednesday, April 14, to further review these cases and assess their potential significance. FDA will review that analysis as it also investigates these cases.
If you are a COVID-19 Vaccination Provider with Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine:
- Alameda County Residents Ages 16+ can be notifed when appointments are available for a COVID-19 vaccine.
- New guidance for outdoor, recreational sports for youth and adults (3/2/21): English | Spanish
