New York state has temporarily stopped administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine on the advice of federal health officials.
Six women have developed a rare blood clot after taking the single-dose vaccine.
We have stopped using Johnson & Johnson in this state and we're going to use Pfizer and Moderna in the meantime,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said.
It’s expected that the pause could last just a few days.
“We do have enough Pfizer and we do have enough Moderna vaccination to keep our schedule and to keep those numbers happening,” Cuomo said.
