Health department resumes Johnson & Johnson vaccinations, announces clinics

San Juan Basin Public Health will resume administration of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine and will offer multiple clinics with Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer vaccines.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials believe the benefits of the single-dose COVID vaccine far outweigh an extremely rare risk of blood clots. Women between the ages of 18 and 50 should be aware of the extremely rare side effect so they can make an informed choice about receiving the vaccine.
