I got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine on March the 17th and haven’t felt right ever since.  I read there was a high likelihood of some adverse reactions to the vaccine, I knew I would probably feel sick after but what I didn’t know was that I would feel sick for almost a month after.  At a public federal Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices meeting on Wednesday the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services said they learned of a Nevadan who was one of the six serious reactions reported to the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.  Tuesday was the day that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a joint statement recommending that there be a pause on the use of the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine while the serious reactions were investigated.  According to the article on ktnv.com as of Monday, more than 6.8 million doses of the Janssen vaccine have been administered in the United States.

It is advised that if you have received the Janssen vaccine and develop a severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within three weeks after the vaccination you should contact your health care provider immediately.
