What you need to know about COVID-19 vaccines

Stay informed about coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized the use of three different vaccines – Pfizer and Moderna, and the Johnson and Johnson vaccine– against the coronavirus, which causes COVID-19.

About the Vaccines…

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are safe and you cannot get the virus from a vaccine. The FDA makes sure all vaccines go through an extensive process to confirm levels of safety and these COVID-19 vaccines went through this process. The FDA continues to review clinical data about the vaccines.

As of April 12, 2021 — more than 6.8 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine have been administered in the U.S. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and FDA have reviewed the data involving six U.S. reported cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. These adverse events appear to be extremely rare.

The (CDC) and the (FDA) recommended the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine resume on April 23, 2021. Experts carefully reviewed all available data and conduct a risk-benefit analysis for the use of this vaccine. This review of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine showed that the vaccine’s known and potential benefits outweigh its known and potential risks.

Women younger than 50 years- old should be aware of the rare risk of blood clots with low platelets after vaccination. Other COVID-19 vaccines are available where this risk has not been seen. If you have already received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, please contact your primary care physician (PCP) with any questions.
