JOHNSON & JOHNSON COVID-19 VACCINE ADVISORY
APRIL 13, 2021 — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with the Food and Drug Administration, are advising all U.S. health providers to temporarily pause giving the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. This is due to a concern that a rare type of blood clot might be associated with the vaccine. Clinica Family Health is pausing its distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in compliance with this advisory.
Six individuals — out of the 6.85 million people given the vaccine in the U.S. — have experienced blood clots. Researchers have not determined that the COVID-19 vaccine caused the clots. Scientists and doctors are meeting today to give further guidance to health providers.
Please reach out to your provider immediately if you have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine within the past three weeks and are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
— leg pain
— abdominal pain
— shortness of breath
Clinica Family Health is monitoring the situation closely. We will follow all guidance from the CDC and FDA and will keep you informed.
April 4: Covid-19 Vaccines Available to the General Public
Clinica is now offering Moderna COVID-19 vaccines to patients who are
18 years old or older.
IMPORTANT UPDATE — Apr. 4, 2021
Clinica Family Health is currently offering Moderna COVID-19 vaccines to all patients and community members who are 18 years old or older.
Our first priority is vaccinating Clinica patients. However, we are scheduling community members when we have additional doses of vaccine or open appointments. We are calling community members who are not Clinica patients off the registry list in the order that they registered. PLEASE NOTE: Adding your name to our registry does not guarantee that Clinica will be able to provide you with a Covid-19 vaccination.
- If you ARE a Clinica patient, please click here to self-schedule an appointment in English or click here to self-schedule in Spanish. Clinica patients: you might also be sent a text message with a link to make an appointment. Please watch for a text from us.
- If you ARE a Clinica patient who is ready for a vaccine and are unable to self-schedule an appointment, please click here to add your name to our vaccine registry.
- If you ARE NOT a Clinica patient but fall into one of the above categories, pleas click here to add your name to our vaccine registry.
Due to high call volumes, we ask that you do not call our communication center to confirm or request a vaccine appointment.
Thank you for your patience. We are trying to vaccinate everyone in our service area as quickly as possible.
