CDC Recommends Lifting Pause on Johnson & Johnson Vaccine: There is another vaccine back in the rotation in the US after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommended to lift the pause on the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The recommendation came after the CDC’s Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) met on Friday to discuss the presenting risks of using the vaccine in light of the reports of blood clots. The group also recommended that that vaccine label be updated to reflect the warning of the blood clots.

Vaccinations by this vendor are expected to resume as soon as possible in most locations. According to President Joe Biden’s coronavirus adviser Jeff Zients, there are more than 9 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine available to use immediately. Unlike the two-dose Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, the Johnson & Johnson version is only one dose, making it easier to bring more Americans to the fully vaccinated stage as quickly as possible.
