- Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine Updates: On April 24, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was concluded safe and effective with the benefits far outweighing the extremely rare clotting disorder associated with the drug.

If you have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, and develop severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within three weeks after vaccination, contact your healthcare provider, or seek medical care. For more information about the adverse effects, and what to do if you are experiencing symptoms, please contact your healthcare provider.
