The CDC has reported a potential correlation between the vaccine and the development of a rare and severe type of blood clot after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The occurrence of this blood clot is extremely rare compared to the number of doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine administered nationwide.
NATIVE HEALTH is following the guidance of the CDC, FDA, and the Arizona Department of Health Services. That guidance is to pause the use of the vaccine. Out of an abundance of caution NATIVE HEALTH is attempting to notify the public and recipients of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in order to provide information.
If you have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and develop symptoms including severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within 3 weeks of your vaccination, we ask that you contact your health care provider immediately.
