Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Again Administered In SD

PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Health (SD-DOH) announced health systems and federal retail pharmacies across the state will resume the use and administration of the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine starting today. This decision was made following the announcement last Friday by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that it has satisfactorily studied and approved the use of the vaccine for those 18 years of age and older, lifting the pause it had implemented on April 13, 2021.

The pause, announced by the CDC on April 13, came after six reports of U.S. cases among women of rare and severe type of blood clots after receiving the vaccine.
