Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine Update

As you all might have heard and seen on the news, the FDA and CDC are ceasing all Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) COVID-19 vaccine administration due to rare blood clot formation in 6 people out of almost 7 million people who have received the vaccine across the US. The blood clots developed in these 6 people 2 weeks after receiving their Janssen vaccine. In order to reevaluate its safety and efficacy, the CDC and FDA are working on getting more information. However, until this has been resolved or until North Atlanta Primary Care (NAPC) has an alternative in place, NAPC will not be administering the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine. If you have an appointment in the upcoming weeks for a COVID-19 vaccine at NAPC, you will receive a call to inform you of the status of your vaccine. If you have not received a call in the next few days regarding your COVID-19 vaccine, please call 770-442-1911 for more information.

Again, these blood clots are extremely rare. If you have already received a dose of the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine please monitor yourself for any signs of severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within two weeks after vaccination. If symptoms arise please contact NAPC immediately at 770-442-1911 to discuss the symptoms with a healthcare provider.

NAPC strongly believes that staying safe and vaccinations are the key to overcoming this pandemic. Please make sure you continue to wear a mask in public, wash your hands frequently, and watch your distance around others. If you have access to receive the Moderna of Pfizer vaccines please get vaccinated. NAPC is here if you have any questions regarding your health, COVID-19, and vaccinations. Thank you for your understanding.

 

Kind Regards,
