Johnson & Johnson vaccines halted

The Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are recommending the U.S. pause administering the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine after reports of blood clots in a small number of people who received it.

The health agencies released a statement Tuesday morning recommending the pause “out of an abundance of caution,” saying blood clots still seem to be “extremely rare.” So far, the CDC and FDA are reviewing six reported cases out of the nearly 7 million Johnson & Johnson vaccines administered in the U.S.

All six were in women between the ages of 18 and 48, with symptoms occurring six to 13 days after vaccination, according to agencies. One woman died and one was  hospitalized in critical condition.
