On April 13, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention called for an immediate pause in the use of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The Rhode Island Department of Health announced the state is also pausing administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. This comes after six patients out of 7 million who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine developed a rare disorder involving blood clots (cerebral venous thrombosis) within two weeks of vaccination. Thundermist is following the recommendation of federal and state agencies and pausing administration of the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine.

Thundermist has not administered the J&J vaccine to any patients. We are reaching out to ten patients scheduled to receive the J&J vaccine this week and offering them the Moderna vaccine. All patients scheduled for vaccination at Thundermist this week will receive the Moderna vaccine.

El 13 de abril, la Administración de Alimentos y Medicamentos del Estados Unidos y los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades pidieron una pausa inmediata en el uso de la vacuna de Johnson & Johnson de dosis única. El Departamento de Salud de Rhode Island anunció que el estado también está pausando la administración de la vacuna Johnson & Johnson. Esto se produce después de que seis pacientes de los 7 millones que recibieron la vacuna de Johnson & Johnson desarrollaron un trastorno poco común que involucraba coágulos de sangre (trombosis venosa cerebral) dentro de las dos semanas posteriores a la vacunación. Thundermist sigue la recomendación de las agencias federales y estatales y detiene la administración de la vacuna Johnson & Johnson (J&J).

Thundermist no ha administrado la vacuna Johnson & Johnson a ningún paciente. Estamos contactando a diez pacientes que están programados para recibir la vacuna de Johnson & Johnson esta semana y ofrecerles la vacuna Moderna. Todos los pacientes programados para la vacunación en Thundermist esta semana recibirán la vacuna Moderna.

Continuaremos manteniéndolo actualizado a medida que sepamos más. Haga clic aquí para leer más del Departamento de Salud de Rhode Island.

What Does a COVID-19 Test Feel Like?

The test will feel weird and be uncomfortable. We will stick a thin swab up your nose until it reaches the back of your throat. The test takes about 15 seconds. Your eyes may water and you might sneeze. The discomfort will go away almost immediately. The person who does the test will have on full personal protective equipment, including a shield, mask, and gown.
