Statewide Hold Put On J&J Vaccine

Statewide Hold Put On J&J Vaccine

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is putting a statewide indefinite hold on the administering of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. 

A half-dozen cases of a rare and severe blood clot condition have been reported in patients around the country after receiving the vaccine.  The CDC and FDA say they are investigating the situation and pausing J&J vaccinations out of an abundance of caution.

When it comes to the statewide efforts, new data from the Department of Health Services shows 70-percent of Wisconsin seniors have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  Over three-and-a-half-million doses have been administered statewide including over 160-thousand doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. 

Nearly 38-percent of the total state population have received at least one dose.
