Update on Johnson & Johnson vaccine from the Department of Health

The Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine is available for use again in Washington state as of April 24, 2021, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) announced on Saturday. 

This move came after DOH paused the use of the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine starting April 13, following the guidance of the FDA/CDC. The concern and pause was only associated with the J&J COVID-19 vaccine, not the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. 

Learn more about this update and what you should do if you received the J&J vaccine on this DOH blog post. See additional guidance on the J&J vaccine for health care providers.
