*COVID-19 VACCINE STATEMENT*
Framingham Vaccine Equity Initiative Not to Administer Johnson and Johnson Vaccine Until Further Notice

Framingham, MA - The Framingham Vaccine Equity Initiative will not administer the Johnson and Johnson (J&J) vaccine until further notice. Any clinics currently scheduled as a part of the equity initiative will use the Moderna vaccine. The City will follow all guidelines about any use of the J&J vaccine.

The Massachusetts COVID-19 Command Response Center issued a statement today about the J&J vaccination pause:

“In response to today’s recommendation from the FDA and CDC to pause J&J vaccines due to an extremely rare condition reported in 6 individuals nationwide, the Department of Public Health directed all providers to immediately pause administration of the J&J vaccine until federal health experts investigate this matter. This action is being taken out of an abundance of caution as the FDA and CDC review these 6 cases, none of which are known to be linked to Massachusetts. The FDA has reported over 6.8M doses of J&J have been administered nationwide. Individuals who have received a J&J vaccine should contact their physician if they have concerns.”
