LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada has stopped using Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine while federal authorities investigate reports of some people in other states experiencing serious reactions, including blood clots.
But state and local health officials said Tuesday that shouldn't affect ongoing vaccination efforts. Only about 4% of the nearly 1.55 million COVID-19 vaccines administered in Nevada to date have been Johnson & Johnson.
Most have been Moderna and Pfizer. The health districts in Reno and Las Vegas are using those until further notice.
Pfizer vaccines also will be used at FEMA mobile clinics instead of J&J in some of the state's most remote rural areas and Native American reservations.
