The FDA and CDC have issued a joint statement, recommending a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine. They issued a joint statement Tuesday morning saying the CDC will hold a meeting Wednesday to review cases of blood clots discovered in six women who have taken the one shot vaccine. The action comes after six cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot were reported in women between the ages of 18 and 48. One woman died, a second is in critical condition in Nebraska. There have been more than six-million doses of the vaccine that have been distributed around the country. The number of cases that develop the disorder is small, but out of an abundance of caution, they are calling for a pause in the use of the vaccine. State health officials say 122-thousand people in Arizona have received the Johnson & Johnson shot.
