SALEM, Ore. – The Oregon Health Authority is asking all of the state’s vaccine providers to immediately stop administering the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

This follows an announcement earlier Tuesday morning from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The action is being taken as an abundance of caution as they review six cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot in women ages 18-48 after vaccination with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

OHA will be sending out more information about this later Tuesday.
