Illinois Department of Public Health pauses use of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine (free)

April 14, 2021 - 22:49

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) paused the use of the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday out of an abundance of caution after six reported U.S. cases of a rare and severe type blood clot developed in individuals after receiving the J&J vaccine.

The move comes after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommended the pause as a precaution.
