Johnson & Johnson said Thursday that it is”collecting the necessary information” to examine the protection of its COVID-19 vaccine — following having a dozen adverse reactions caused a Colorado inoculation site in order to close.
“There is no greater priority than the safety and well-being of the people we serve, and we carefully review reports of adverse events in individuals receiving our medicines and vaccines,” the firm said in a statement to FOX 31.
The drugmaker said it might share information regarding individuals who received the jab using the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and”other appropriate health authorities.”
“This is part of the established process to inform health authorities’ comprehensive surveillance applications that track the general safety of medications, as well the vaccines approved for use against this pandemic,” the company said.
“We are collecting the essential information, including in the neighborhood vaccination center, to assess these reports”
On Wednesday, around a dozen people reportedly suffered adverse reactions — including nausea and dizziness — to the single-dose vaccine at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park site in Commerce City.
Just as Johnson & Johnson’s statement was published Thursday, Wake County, North Carolina halted vaccine operations at the PNC Arena in Raleigh after a”handful” of receivers also suffered adverse reactions to the company’s shots.
