CDC Postpones Decision on J&J Vaccine

(Atlanta, GA) -- The CDC is pushing back a decision on Johnson & Johnson's coronavirus vaccine.  

The vaccine's use has been paused over concerns about blood clotting.  

A CDC advisory panel decided not to make a decision on lifting the pause so that they have more time to look at the cause of the rare, but serious clotting issues.  

The committee plans to revisit the issue in a week.  

Six women have developed blood clots after getting the single-dose vaccine. One of those women died and another was in critical condition.

The Pfizer and Moderna Vaccines however remain a full go.
