Edmonson Voice Report:
The Barren River District Health Department has paused the administration of Johnson & Johnson vaccination under the direction of the Kentucky Department of Public Health, the CDC, and the FDA, according to a released statement from BRDHD today.
"Due to the temporary pause in Johnson & Johnson vaccinations, we are providing (2-dose) Moderna vaccines during all scheduled vaccination clinics," the statement said. "Existing appointments will be honored with Moderna vaccine in place of Johnson & Johnson vaccine. If you currently have an appointment scheduled and wish to wait for the re-release of Johnson & Johnson vaccine, please contact us and cancel your appointment. We will notify the public when the Johnson & Johnson vaccine has been re-released, and appointments can be rescheduled at that time."
The BRDHD is currently administering COVID-19 vaccines for individuals 18 years of age and older in all 8 county clinics.
"Due to vaccine supply, vaccine clinics will occur on specific days for each county. Once the appointments are full for April, we will schedule appointments again in mid-April for the month of May," BRDHD said.
