Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Pause Lifted April 23, 2021

The US Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have lifted the recommended pause on Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine use following a thorough safety review. The CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices conducted a thorough review of the vaccine after reports of six cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals following administration of the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine. The Illinois Department of Public Health has informed local health departments that they may resume the use of this vaccine following the FDA and CDC announcement.

Frequently Asked Questions

COVID-19 Vaccination for Young People

IDPH FAQ sheet with information for young people.

Who is eligible?  Eligibility is open to everyone age 12+

Pfizer has FDA approval for ages 16+, as well as emergency approval for ages 12-15. Moderna and Johnson & Johnson have emergency approval for ages 18+. Please check with your scheduling site to ensure it has the appropriate vaccine.

What is an Emergency Use Authorization? How is safety taken into account?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for authorizing a vaccine for emergency use. Learn how they do this at https://www.fda.gov/vaccines-blood-biologics/vaccines/emergency-use-authorization-vaccines-explained.

How do vaccines work in our bodies? Are there different types?

Vaccines work by triggering an immune response from our body. Different types of vaccines can produce this response. Learn the details of how our bodies do this and the different vaccine types from the Center for Disease Control's website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/different-vaccines/how-they-work.html.

What is an mRNA vaccine? How is it different from past vaccines we have had in the U.S.?

The current COVID-19 vaccine candidates that are authorized for emergency use in the United States were developed using mRNA technology, which is different from vaccines the U.S. has previously used. The Center for Disease Control's website explains more about what these are and how they work: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/different-vaccines/mrna.html?fbclid=IwAR0iMyaBDSeoXHRK4hgZvJkGpx-j-FsX8a5Fid2zJbA6D6tQ7TmXxd7ZnpI

If I already had COVID-19, should I get vaccinated?

Health officials recommend getting vaccinated even if you already had COVID-19. Studies have shown that vaccination provides a strong boost in protection in people who have recovered from COVID-19. Learn more on the benefits of being vaccinated: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/vaccine-benefits.html

How is a vaccine developed in the U.S.? What kind of regulatory process is there to determine if it is safe and effective?

The FDA regulates vaccine development and approval in the U.S. through a strict process. Read more on the steps between research and development to approval at https://www.fda.gov/vaccines-blood-biologics/development-approval-process-cber/vaccine-development-101.
