US resuming Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine use after CDC recommends ending pause

The United States can resume use of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine immediately, top health regulators said on Friday, ending a 10-day pause to investigate the vaccine’s link to extremely rare but potentially deadly blood clots.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said in a joint statement that health systems and vaccine recipients would be warned of the risk of a potentially fatal syndrome involving severe blood clots and low platelets.

The agencies made the decision following a meeting by outside advisers to the CDC that recommended the vaccine pause be ended. The decision followed investigations by the agencies into the risks of the vaccine.

As Jennifer Johnson reports, many Americans are still hesitant to get inoculated.
