“We are looking forward to offering both the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines to the community in the coming weeks,” said Grace Grinager, Cook County Public Health Supervisor. “Both vaccines offer excellent protection from severe disease due to COVID-19.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently lifted a temporary pause in use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The temporary pause was due to reports of a rare blood clotting disorder following vaccination in a very small number of individuals. After reviewing the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine for use in the ongoing pandemic, the CDC and FDA concluded that the benefits of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine far outweigh the risk. The pause allowed time to educate medical providers on how to effectively recognize and treat this rare side effect and is an example of how our vaccine safety system works.
