VH pauses Johnson and Johnson vaccinations

covid-19 vaccine arrival

Valley Health (VH) will discontinue the Johnson and Johnson (J&J)vaccine administration until further notice.

Future vaccinations will be transitioned to the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine for the time being.

This is due to a rare but serious side effect of the possibility of a blood clot which has developed in some who have received the J&J vaccine.

Valley Health has identified those who have already been vaccinated with the J&J vaccine and are reaching out to them.

You can email any questions to c19vaccineteam@valleyhealthlink.com.
