    As of this morning, the CDC is recommending a pause in the administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

    There have been some reported rare blood clots and platelet changes in six people who received this vaccine (out of >6 million doses given in the US).

    This pause in Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be in effect until the CDC and other organizations review the data and make a recommendation on safety. This does not affect Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. CHC will be postponing all scheduled Johnson & Johnson vaccine clinics at this time.

    Muscatine appointments for this week have now been switched to Moderna. If you already signed up for Johnson and Johnson, you do not need to reserve an appointment again. Thank you.
