Johnson & Johnson Vaccine

Rhode Island Department of Health announced on April 26, 2021 that Rhode Island will resume the administration of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. This decision was made following the recommendation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that the temporary pause on the administration of Johnson & Johnson vaccine should be lifted. The agencies are confident in the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine in preventing COVID-19. The pause in the administration of Johnson & Johnson vaccine demonstrates that we have rigorous safety systems in place, and those systems work. Getting vaccinated is the best way to keep yourself and your loved ones safe from COVID-19. Thundermist continues to administer the Moderna vaccine at the majority of our vaccine clinics.

All studies show the COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective. COVID-19 vaccines have been tested in large clinical trials with people of different ages, races, and ethnicities to make sure they are safe. No steps involving safety have been skipped. COVID-19 vaccines are being held to the same standards as other vaccines to be sure they are safe.

Thundermist’s medical experts encourage everyone to get vaccinated when eligible. You will help end COVID-19. The vaccine will keep you and your family safe.

Who should not get vaccinated?

  • If you have had a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) or an immediate allergic reaction—even if it was not severe—to any ingredient in an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine,  you should not get an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.
  • If you have had a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) or an immediate allergic reaction after getting the first dose of the vaccine, you should not get another dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.
  • If you had symptoms such as hives, swelling, or wheezing (respiratory distress) you may be eligible to receive the second dose of the vaccine in a high level of care facility, please contact your primary care provider.
  • This includes allergic reactions to polyethylene glycol (PEG) and polysorbate. Polysorbate is not an ingredient in either mRNA COVID-19 vaccine but is closely related to PEG, which is in the vaccines. People who are allergic to PEG or polysorbate should not get an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.
  • If you received passive antibody therapy (monoclonal antibodies or convalescent serum) as treatment for COVID-19 within the past 90 days.
  • If you received any vaccine in the last 14 days.
  • If you had a positive test for COVID-19 recently and are still within the required period of isolation.
