This week, CVS and Walgreens will start offering Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 Vaccine. As health regulators looked at uncommon but severe cases of blood clots in women who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, they suggested a delay in giving the company’s one-dose vaccines. After an alert was introduced to help women determine whether they wanted the shot, the pause was lifted on Friday.
Officials announced that about 4,000 doses of Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be sent to Massachusetts this week. Because of the high demand for the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, Union Pharmacy in Newton Centre is now providing walk-in clinics. Dr. Xiaoyan Qin said, “People just say easy, get it done, and they’re ready to move on with their lives and see their grandparents.”
People seem to be happy about the walk-in services by pharmacies. People have been nothing but thankful. Not long after the CDC lifted the pause, the state re-authorized the use of the vaccine on Friday night. Officials from the Department of Health and Human Services hope that the process will boost public confidence in the vaccine.
