PORTLAND, Ore. – Oregon Health Authority officials are investigating the death of a woman who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The Oregon resident, a woman in her 50s, developed a rare, serious blood clot within two weeks of receiving a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

She was vaccinated before the Johnson & Johnson variety was put on pause due to six cases where recipients developed rare, serious blood clots.

Prior to the pause, about 7.5 million doses of the one-dose vaccine were administered in the U.S. with 87,000 of those in Oregon.

It is not yet known if the woman’s death was related to the vaccine.

Information about the death has been provided to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. State and federal health officials are investigating.
