Bay Area counties paused administrations Tuesday of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine after six people out of millions of recipients across the country developed blood clots less than two weeks after the shot.
Public health officials in Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, San Mateo, San Francisco, Sonoma, Monterey and Marin counties announced that they would temporarily halt use of the vaccine, which was developed by J&J's pharmaceutical subsidiary Janssen.
The state's Department of Public Health also issued a statement Tuesday urging a temporary pause on the vaccine's administration while state and federal officials determine whether the clotting incidents are significant.
More than 6.8 million doses of the vaccine have been administered across the country. Health officials have confirmed cases of rare and severe blood clots in just six women between the ages of 18 and 48 who received the J&J vaccine, with symptoms appearing between six and 13 days post-vaccination.
An update on the federal analysis into the rare blood clots was expected after press time Wednesday; visit PleasantonWeekly.com for continued coverage.
A year after COVID-19 brought many things to a halt, the Sunol Visitor Center is now open to the public with limited capacity and resumed programming last weekend.
All of the district's visitor centers have strict safety protocols in effect, including hand sanitation and mandatory face masks. No reservations are required though access to the exhibits may be limited due to capacity restrictions.
The Sunol Wilderness Regional Preserve and backpack camping are also open right now, though parking is limited at the preserve and fills early on the weekends, and visitors may be advised to come back later. Learn more at ebparks.org.
