COVID vaccine clinics suspend gunfire in Ohio

COLUMBUS – Several vaccination clinics stop distributing COVID-19 vaccines due to the suspension of Johnson & Johnson vaccine distribution.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommended a hiatus from the Johnson & Johnson vaccine Tuesday after six cases of rare blood clots. That hiatus will likely be brief, but in the meantime, Ohio is switching to the other two options: Pfizer and Moderna, which are both two shots.
