The Wisconsin Department of Health Services announced the pause on administration of the Johnson & Johnson COVID19 vaccine will continue until a federal recommendation to lift it is made. The extension comes two days after a federal review by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. The committee has recommended a pause while the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention collects and analyzes more information about possible links between the vaccine and a rare and severe type of blood clotting. DHS Secretary-Designee Karen Timberlake said they appreciate the level of complexities being considered by this national panel of independent experts in their review of the vaccine. Vaccination clinics in Door and Kewaunee counties that had been scheduled for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine were canceled for this past Wednesday and Thursday.
