CDC Postpones Vote on Johnson & Johnson Vaccine, Wants More Data

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory committee is postponing their vote on the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

During a virtual meeting Wednesday, the group talked about the six women who developed rare blood clots after receiving the vaccine. One of them has died.

The group says they need more time to collect data on the single dose shot.

They’re also looking to see if there are additional cases.

President Biden’s COVID-19 taskforce says people who were scheduled to receive the Johnson & Johnson shot are now scheduled to receive either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
