The Kendall County Health Department is pivoting away from the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Director RaeAnn VanGundy says clinics are still going on, but with Pfizer and Moderna vaccines instead.
VanGundy says anyone who has received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine recently should keep an eye out for symptoms like severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath. Anyone with those symptoms should see a doctor right away.
VanGundy says the health department continues to get vaccines into people's arms.
Available vaccine clinics are posted on the Kendall County Health Department's web site. VanGundy says anyone under the age of 18, can call ahead of time to see what vaccine is being used that day. The Pfizer vaccine is approved for those sixteen and older. The Moderna vaccine is for those eighteen and older.
