Kern County Public Health to pause all Johnson & Johnson distribution
/// From: Johnson, Linda <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Thursday, November 12, 2020 at 4:59 PM To: PHO - AP Headquarters Photo Desk <email@example.com> Subject: JJ Vaccine Administration Photos -- Need someone to prep Folks, I have been asking companies developing coronavirus vaccines for more file shots. These six show showing administration of the vaccine. I just sent you eight other photos showing laboratory research, etc. I have obtained one photo release from Johnson Johnson that is to cover all 14 photos and will send that in a minute. The media rep I'm working with does not have the dates these were taken, so I'd like to see if you folks can decide which ones you like the best and then tell me and I can go back to the media rep and get when and where they were shot and something about what's happening in the photo for the caption. Thanks!

(KERO) — Kern County Public Health has informed all Kern County vaccination providers to hold the administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine until given federal recommendation to resume.
This announcement coming just hours after the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended a pause in the use of vaccine "out of an abundance of caution" on Tuesday.
In a series of tweets Tuesday morning, the FDA said it was recommending a pause after receiving reports that six people developed "rare and severe" blood clots after receiving the vaccine. So far, nearly 7 million Americans have received a dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
"CDC has indicated that these adverse events appear to be extremely rare," Public Health said. "However, we take the safety of vaccines very seriously."
