Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Update:
We have received J&J vaccine from DHS and have been distributing it for the past 3-4 weeks with no known adverse reactions from our recipients. Following the FDA and CDC recommendations and out of an abundance of caution, we are also pausing our J&J clinics managed by Greendale Health Department and as part of the Zone D Health Department vaccine efforts at the Sports Complex.

These are the steps we are taking:
�Ÿ”�Cancelling all J&J clinic appointments via e-mail to those who register with email address, calling those without email.
�Ÿ”�Contacting individuals who received a J&J vaccine with us in the last 3 weeks.
�Ÿ”�Offering alternative vaccine resources for other vaccine preparations.
�Ÿ”�Continuing to monitor FDA, CDC, and WI DHS communications and webinars to stay current on the latest information related to J&J vaccine.

Here are the key points:
�Ÿ”�More than 6.8 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine have been administered in the U.S.
�Ÿ”�CDC and FDA are reviewing data involving six reported U.S. cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the J&J vaccine.
�Ÿ”�COVID-19 vaccine safety is a top priority for the federal government.
�Ÿ”�A meeting will take place tomorrow to review and assess the cases.
�Ÿ”�More information will be shared as it becomes available.

If you have received a Johnson & Johnson vaccine and are concerned about symptoms, please consult your medical provider. Symptoms of this rare condition include:
�Ÿ”�severe headache
�Ÿ”�leg pain
�Ÿ”�abdominal pain
�Ÿ”�shortness of breath
