Update as of 4/13/21
Metro Health – University of Michigan Health agrees with and will follow the recommendation by the CDC and FDA to pause distribution of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine. We will await findings from panels of scientists who are examining any relationship between the vaccine and the rare blood-clot disorder reported this week. This precaution to halt using this vaccine is recommended as 6 cases occurred among nearly 7 million recipients of the vaccine. This thorough review of the vaccine results should inspire confidence in the regulatory process. In calling for the pause, the federal agencies are fulfilling their obligation to monitor the vaccine rollout closely and carefully. It is important to note, the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson viral vector type of vaccine is different than the RNA based Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
