Johnson & Johnson
St. Joe’s will pause the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at our facilities out of an abundance of caution as recommended by the CDC and US Food and Drug Administration. We are confident in the safety of the mRNA vaccines approved for emergency use authorization and will continue to administer the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. Vaccination remains our best hope for ending this pandemic.
This week, another 21,340 vaccine doses of Pfizer and Moderna arrived at our Mercy Health, St. Joe’s and IHA clinics, adding to the 251,527 total doses administered to date. Despite the fact that over 35 percent of Michigan’s population are now vaccinated, we are in the midst of a spring surge that is once again straining hospital and emergency department resources.
