UNC Health is closely monitoring the situation regarding the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. As a precaution, we will follow the FDA’s recommendation and pause vaccinations using the Johnson & Johnson vaccine until federal authorities are able to review data and provide further guidance. Patients who were scheduled to receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at UNC Health vaccination clinics today will be offered one of the other vaccines where possible or rescheduled as necessary. Severe reactions are rare. Click here for information on when to seek medical care.

Hope is on the horizon, but you still need to wear a mask.

Everyone who wants a vaccine will eventually get one. However, supplies will be limited for several months.

Vaccines are one important tool in our toolkit to fight COVID-19, but we still need to use all of our tools if we hope to end this pandemic. This means it’s still important to adhere to the following safety measures:

  • Wear a mask.
  • Stay 6 feet apart from others whenever possible.
  • Wash your hands.
  • Stay home if you’re sick.

Below is additional information on protecting yourself from COVID-19.
