North Carolina site stops J & J shots after side effects – Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky

Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky 2021-04-08 20:11:11 –

Three North Carolina vaccine clinics have stopped taking Johnson & Johnson vaccines due to side effects such as fainting.

Four people have been taken to hospital for further testing and state and federal health authorities are considering the issue. All four are expected to recover. One of the vaccination sites was at Raleigh’s PNC Arena and the other two were at UNC Health’s clinic.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating reports of side effects in multiple states, but says fainting is not uncommon. Colorado recently saw the two go to the hospital after receiving a single-dose shot.
