Thousands of J&J recordings are available on the Orlando FEMA website
ORLANDO, Florida – Following last night’s recommendation, the Florida Emergency Management Department announced that the state will plan to resume use of Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccine as soon as possible. Which day will happen, however, is still to be determined.
What you need to know
- Indicate that you will resume Johnson & Johnson as soon as possible
- There are thousands of J&J shots available, according to the Valencia College FEMA website
- The website has been running the Pfizer vaccine for the past week
- More coronvirus news
Administrators at the FEMA supported site on the West Campus of Valencia College say they have thousands of the J&J vaccine refrigerated and ready for use.
The FEMA website was unable to release the Pfizer version of the vaccine until the last week after the Johnson & Johnson shooting was suspended. Previously, the site was giving out thousands of J&J recordings every day.
The break in J&J recordings began after reports from several people who developed rare cerebral blood clots.
CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky says some women under the age of 50 are at increased risk for this rare condition.
“We have three safe and effective options for a COVID vaccine in this country and the J&J is a key vaccine that has important benefits, including its single-dose option and its viability when the supply chain may not allow freezers.”
The state says they will be posting updates throughout the weekend when it comes to a schedule for Johnson & Johnson’s continued shooting.
