The Food and Drug Administration has restricted the use of the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine to adults who are unable or unwilling to get the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna mRNA shots. The decision comes after the agency completed an updated risk analysis of developing thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome, or TTS, a rare and possibly fatal combination of blood clots and low platelet counts one to two weeks after receiving the vaccine.
We are currently experiencing limited supplies of the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine. This vaccine is available at both our Valparaiso and Portage locations, while supplies last, through July 26, 2022.
