Johnson & Johnson vaccinations resume after investigation

April 26, 2021

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lifted their 11-day pause on the Johnson & Johnson vaccine on Friday.

Although the vote was not unanimous, with 10 out of 15 committee members voting to lift the pause, Johnson & Johnson vaccinations have resumed. Now, the vaccine will be tagged with a new safety label to indicate the risk of a rare blood clotting syndrome for women under the age of 50. The vaccine’s original recommendation of its authorization for people 18 or older remains the same.
