Update on Johnson and Johnson vaccine

Today, the CDC and FDA recommended temporarily pausing further administration of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine out of an abundance of extreme caution.


While no State of Minnesota vaccination sites are using J&J this week, the state is recommending other providers follow the CDC/FDA recommendation to temporarily pause use of J&J at this time.


The recommendation comes after 6 people out of almost 7 million who have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine experienced a rare and severe type of blood clot after getting their shot.


All six cases occurred among women between the ages of 18 and 48, and symptoms occurred 6 to 13 days after vaccination.


The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) will meet Wednesday to further review these cases and assess their potential significance.


The FDA will also review that analysis and investigate the cases on its own.

Please note that it is common to experience mild to moderate symptoms including fever, headache, fatigue and joint/muscle pain during the first week after receiving any Covid-19 vaccine. These side effects usually start within three days of getting a vaccine and should last only a few days.


While these incidents have been extremely rare, anyone who has received the J&J vaccine who develops severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within three weeks after vaccination should contact their health care provider or seek immediate medical attention.

Sharing information we received today from St. Louis County Public Health.

April 1, 2021

Vaccination efforts continue at full speed ahead. With this week’s expansion of eligibility to all Minnesotans age 16+, it simplifies our efforts to fill remaining appointments at vaccine clinics. St. Louis County Public Health remains focused on vaccinating previously identified priority groups, but now can make unfilled slots available to the general public.

We are posting open clinic slots online at stlouiscountymn.gov/vaccineregistration.

Please visit mn.gov/covid19/vaccine to find vaccination options in your area.

As you’ve probably heard us say, we are vaccinating for impact – prioritizing those most at risk for severe complications and those most at risk for catching the virus. A couple of new stats sure suggest this is working!

Overall, we continue to see a concerning rise in new cases – 328 in the last week (nearly 100 more than just the week prior). Our total case count is 15,828. Thankfully, we again have had no new deaths reported this past week.

Latest vaccination data shows that 77,789 SLC residents have received their first dose of the vaccine, and 48,288 (nearly a quarter of our population!) have completed their vaccination series.

A note about travel: MDH continues to strongly discourage unnecessary travel due to the risk of spreading the virus (and variants!) between communities. If you or anyone you know took a spring break trip or other travels, you are encouraged to get tested 3-5 days after you return.
Find other travel guidance here. https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/prevention.html#travel

Given the high level of COVID-19 spread in our communities, any unnecessary travel is highly discouraged. If you must travel outside the state or country for work, study, medical care, or personal safety and security, do what you can to protect yourself and your family.

COVID-19 Vaccine In Relation to Immunizations/Screenings:

Per the CDC: If you get your COVID-19 vaccine first, wait at least 14 days before getting any other vaccine, including a flu or shingles vaccine. If you get another vaccine first, wait at least 14 days before getting your COVID-19 vaccine.

You must wait 4 weeks after your second dose of COVID-19 vaccine for TB testing.

• Reduce Stress and Build Resilience • Develop Effective Coping Skills

• Enhance Well-being • Increase Self-awareness

What students are saying about the group: “The overall impact of talking with others about my mental wellbeing and feeling heard makes a huge difference in my self-confidence.” “ It has given me skills to combat stress about school.”



This skills group is about learning and using practical techniques for self-care and mutual support based on the Mind-Body Medicine model. Learn the science and skills of meditation, guided imagery, biofeedback, and self-expression in words, drawings, and movement in a supportive on-line group of 10 students and two facilitators.

These skills are proven to help lower stress, improve mood, enhance resilience and optimism, as well as help prevent chronic health conditions. Mind Body Medicine is a holistic evidenced based approach to wellness. It is about self-care, social support, and community building that transforms and empowers people.

Additional information about this approach developed by Dr. James Gordon can be found at The Center for Mind-Body Medicine https://cmbm.org
