Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Availability Update
Based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Food and Drug Administration and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Denver Health will stop giving out the Johnson & Johnson vaccine until there has been a review of reported cases of a rare but serious type of blood clot in the brain or in the abdomen. Among individuals who received the vaccine, there have been only six reported cases of this type of blood clot, with more than 6.8 million doses of this vaccine administered in the United States. These events will be further reviewed at a meeting of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices later this week with further guidance to follow.
If you received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine more than a month ago, you are at very low risk of serious side effects. Anyone who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine within the last three weeks who develops severe headache, difficulty breathing, leg pain or stomach pain should contact their primary care provider. These symptoms are different from the flu-like symptoms people may experience after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. Patients who are scheduled to receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in the coming days may reschedule using MyChart or by calling the Denver Health vaccine hotline at 303-436-7000 to receive either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine. Patients who do not reschedule themselves will be contacted through MyChart, text or phone call with instructions on how to reschedule. We will provide an update once we have additional guidance from federal health officials.

Have You Received Your Vaccination at Another Location? Please Unsubscribe
