Berrien County Health Department to resume use of J&J vaccine

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. – The Berrien County Health Department announced today that it will resume the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for anyone 18 years or older.

This decision follows similar announcements from the FDA, CDC, and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to continue the use of the one-dose vaccine after pausing its use on April 13 to investigate reports of an extremely rare blood clotting syndrome in some people following their vaccinations.

The next opportunity area residents have to get the J&J vaccine will be at a clinic on Tuesday, May 4 at the Berrien County Health Department office. You can make an appointment for this clinic here.

The Health Department continues to offer both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
