CHARLOTTE, N.C. — On Tuesday, the U.S. recommended health care providers "pause" administering the single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine due to reports of potentially dangerous blood clot issues.
In a joint statement Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration said it was investigating clots in six women in the days after vaccination, in combination with reduced platelet counts. More than 6.8 million doses of the J&J vaccine have been administered in the U.S.
All adults 16 and older are eligible for the vaccine in both North Carolina and South Carolina.
In a tweet Tuesday, Novant Health announced it would not administer any more doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine until further notice. Any person scheduled to receive the J&J vaccine will be offered the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or rescheduled.
