Idaho Doctors Address What's Next With J&J Vaccine On Pause
Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended “pausing” distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by Johnson and Johnson as the agency investigates unusual blood clots in six women who had the shot. One woman died. More than seven million doses of that vaccine have been given in the United States, and more than 30,000 in Idaho according to state Health and Welfare. Our panel of medical experts answers your questions about this pause, its impact on vaccine hesitancy and COVID-19.
