US regulators lift pause on J&J vaccine after panel recommendation

Saturday, 24. April 2021 01:01

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said they have lifted the recommended pause on the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

The move comes after CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices issued a recommendation for the resumption of the use of the jab in the country.

Earlier in April, the CDC and the FDA urged states to temporarily halt inoculation with the J&J vaccine amid reports of six patients developing blood clots after receiving their shots.
