North Carolina and other states stopped administering the Johnson and Johnson vaccine after some recipients reported lightheadedness. Then, federal health officials recommended pausing use of the J&J shot after six people developed a rare type of blood clot.
Carolina Connection’s Kyra Miles talked with Professor Audrey Pettifor about how this suspension affects people in North Carolina and across the country. Pettifor is an epidemiologist at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health.
