The mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer BioNTech or Moderna) are recommended over the use of Janssen COVID-19 vaccine for use in the prevention of COVID-19 in individuals 18 years and older. This is due to the risk of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia or Gullain-Barre Syndrome following vaccination with the Janssen vaccine.
Clients medically unable to receive the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine or who would otherwise not be vaccinated against COVID-19 may request the Janssen vaccine, and a CCPHC nurse may determine if the client is eligible for the vaccine. If you wish to receive a J&J vaccine, you may sign up under for a COVID-19 vaccine clinic appointment and let the nurse know you would like to discuss your eligibility to receive Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
