J&J Covid-19 vaccine no longer available in the US


According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Covid-19 vaccine is no longer offered in the United States.

The CDC has directed that all remaining doses expire last week.

Since the J&J vaccine was first made available, approximately 19 million Americans have received it. CDC data shows that more than 31 million doses of the J&J vaccine have been distributed to states and other jurisdictions. However, about 12 million doses remain unused.

The CDC restricted the use of this vaccine for adults who are not eligible to receive other vaccines due to the risk of a dangerous clotting disorder called thrombosis and thrombocytopenia (TTS), which can occur after the vaccination.

In the US, only 7% of those who were vaccinated received the J&J as their first dose.

The vast majority of vaccines administered were mRNA vaccines produced by Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and Moderna. These vaccines are still free in the US as long as supplies last.
