Midland Health: Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine Update

Posted On: 4/13/2021

Midland Health is aware of and will follow the Texas Department of State Health Services recommendation to pause all administration of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.

 This recommendation follows the announcement made from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The CDC and FDA are reviewing data from six reported U.S. cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the J&J vaccine. It is important to recognize it is not clear that the J&J vaccine has caused these clotting events.

 As of April 12, over 6.8 million doses of the J&J vaccine has been administered nationwide. With 500,000 doses of the J&J vaccine administered in Texas, there have been no blood clotting events reported.

 Midland Health has administered approximately 500 doses of the J&J vaccine throughout our community at Premier Family Care and various community outreach including homebound vaccination efforts. It is important to recognize it is not clear that the J&J vaccine has caused these clotting events.

 Individuals who have received the J&J vaccine that develop a severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within three weeks of the vaccine being administered should contact their health care provider or call 68-Nurse for further advice.
