Hold Placed on Johnson and Johnson Vaccine

(Indianapolis, IN) - The State of Indiana has stopped giving the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine for now.


The decision comes after six women from other states developed a rare blood clotting disorder several days after receiving the vaccine, according to the Indiana State Department of Health.  IDH officials emphasized the blood clotting disordered has developed in just a half dozen out of more than six million people given the vaccine nationwide.


Officials said they’re not sure how long the pause button will remain on the Johnson and Johnson vaccine at state run clinics.
