Los Angeles County has paused the distribution of the Johnson and Johnson Vaccine.

Why is the Johnson and Johnson vaccine being paused? On 4/13/21, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended a temporary pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine because 6 cases of a severe type of blood clot have been reported in people who received the vaccine in the US. The blood clot is called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST). The 6 cases were in women ages 18 to 48 and their symptoms started 6 to 13 days after they received the vaccine. These side effects are very rare. There have been almost 7 million doses nationally of the J&J vaccine administered in the U.S. and only 6 reported cases. The pause is being recommended out of an abundance of caution while the FDA and CDC complete their review of the cases. This is expected to take several days.

COVID-19 Symptoms & Testing:

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that typically causes mild to moderate illness, like the common cold, but can lead to dangerous complications. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China and is now infecting people around the world.

COVID-19 Symptoms

Symptoms may also include: chills, muscle or body pain, fatigue, headache, sore throat, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, congestion or runny nose, or new loss of taste or smell. This list of symptoms is not all inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.

When To Seek Emergency Medical Attention

Look for emergency warning signs* for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:
● Trouble breathing

● Inability to wake or stay awake
● Pale, gray, or blue-colored skin, lips, or nail beds, depending on skin tone

*This list is not all possible symptoms. Please call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you. Call 911 or call ahead to your local emergency facility: Notify the operator that you are seeking
care for someone who has or may have COVID-19.

 

How to Get Tested for COVID-19

Testing still plays an important role in reducing the spread of COVID-19. Free COVID-19 testing is available to all Los Angeles County residents at drive-up and walk-up testing sites. Appointments are currently not needed and you are able to register on-site at LA County and City of LA testing sites. Appointments can still be made and can help reduce wait times.

Testing is currently recommended if you:
● Have symptoms of COVID-19.
● Were asked by LA County Department of Public Health to get a test because of a contact tracing or outbreak investigation.
● Were in “close contact” with someone who has COVID-19 in the past 2 weeks.
● Work or live in places such as skilled nursing facilities, group homes, residential care facilities, correctional facilities or homeless shelters.
● Are a person experiencing homelessness.
● Are an essential worker with frequent contacts with the public in the following areas: health care, emergency, food and grocery services, factory workers in food and retail, public transportation, and education.
● Don't have symptoms but believe you may be infected now because you were exposed to people who were sick, were around many people who were not wearing face coverings, and/or were not keeping safe distance in the past 2 weeks.
