Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine:
The FDA and CDC are recommending that the U.S. pause their use of the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine due to six cases of a “rare and severe” type of blood clot. Based on the federal government’s recommendation and out of an abundance of caution, the Maryland Department of Health directs all Maryland COVID-19 vaccine providers to pause the administration of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines until further federal guidance is issued.
– The Health Department will pause in our use of this vaccine while it is being reviewed.
– Our scheduled J&J clinic will use Moderna instead.
– This may affect how much vaccine we receive from the state and reduce the number of people we can vaccinate right now.
– We only had one J&J clinic on March 5, more than 3 weeks ago.
– We are not aware of any reports of this side effect in Carroll County.
– This type of side effect has not been seen with the mRNA technology in Moderna or Pfizer. 
– This is an extremely rare disorder involving blood clots – less than one in a million (6 cases out of 6.8 million vaccinated); all cases are in women age 18-48; symptoms appeared 6-13 days after vaccination.
– Anyone who received the J&J vaccine who develops severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within three weeks of vaccination should contact their healthcare provider.
