COVID-19 Updates

  • (Tuesday 4/13), Federal partners alerted the City about a small number of rare serious adverse events involving the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine. We are communicating this directly to all COVID-19 vaccine providers.
    • Note: 6.8 million doses of J&J have been administered nationally, and there were 6 of these (CVST) adverse events reported
  • While these events are extremely rare, out of an abundance of caution the City is pausing the administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine today and will review operations for the coming days.
    • For patients who were due to receive the vaccine, those appointments will be rescheduled. A message will be sent but staff will be on site to speak with them in case the message was not received. Homebound appointments will also be rescheduled.
    • We will continue to administer the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines in NYC and will keep everyone updated as we learn more and if there will be any further impact on operations.
    • You will not be able to make appointments for J&J vaccines at this time. This may mean sites that were previously available to you to schedule are no longer available. In our Authorized Scheduling system, this includes only the Co-op City site and the NYPD-East New York site.
  • The cases being reviewed by the FDA and CDC involve a type of blood clot called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) that was seen in combination with low levels of blood platelets (thrombocytopenia).
    • People who have received the J&J vaccine who develop severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within three weeks after vaccination should contact their health care provider.
  • This is the vaccine system working exactly as it should: events are reported nationally and the actions being taken today reflect how seriously we take signals from our warning system. Health care providers are asked to report adverse events to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System at https://vaers.hhs.gov/reportevent.html
  • Continuing our COVID vaccination efforts remains an urgent priority for protecting New Yorkers. We will proceed with administering the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to beat back the COVID-19 pandemic.
