Clatsop County Public Health and other local providers will resume use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine this week, in line with guidance issued by the Oregon Health Authority.

Federal officials declared a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine April 13 after serious side effects were seen in a small number of people who received the shot. The pause was lifted April 23 after review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Because supplies of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine remain limited, Clatsop County will continue to reserve its use for people with obstacles to attending the regular community vaccination events.

PLEASE NOTE – The county’s Risk Level status under the State of Oregon’s COVID-19 guidance metrics for business and social activity is based on COVID-19 case data as compiled by the Oregon Health Authority. The state’s case totals may differ from the county’s.

The county and Oregon Health and Science University are offering drive-through COVID-19 testing to members of the public. For more information, go to www.co.clatsop.or.us.

The Public Health Department reminds people to continue to wear masks, practice social distancing and follow other virus-prevention measures.
