Statement Regarding the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine

The Finger Lakes COVID-19 Vaccine Hub and vaccine providers in the Finger Lakes Region are following federal and state recommendations to pause immediately the use of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine out of an abundance of caution. Locally, vaccine providers are working to reschedule Johnson & Johnson/Janssen clinics this week with the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccines. While adverse events related to the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine appear to be very rare, anyone who has received this vaccine and develops severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within three weeks after vaccination should contact their health care provider.
