COVID-19 Vaccine Update - Johnson & Johnson (April 16, 2021) 
Johnson & Johnson vaccines remain on pause as the FDA reviews evidence of rare blood clots. The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines have not been linked with any concerns and continue to be administered. During calls on April 14 and 15, physicians and vaccine researchers at the CDC emphasized that the number of reported cases has been very rare (less than one in one million people). The reason for the temporary halt in vaccination is to thoroughly investigate whether additional cases of clots have occurred. The goal is to allow people to make informed decisions prior to receiving a vaccination with the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) product. It is the expectation of our Health Department that within the next 2-3 weeks, vaccinations with J&J will resume. Read the full statement from the Calvert County Health Department.
