Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine Resumes
Following guidance from the CDC, FDA and the NC Department of Health and Human Services that the temporary pause on use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should be lifted, Wake Forest Baptist Health will resume use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for future vaccinations.
On May 5, Wake Forest Baptist will hold two vaccine clinics with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine (ages 18 and up) - one will be held at the Downtown Health Plaza and the other at Davie Medical Center. Wake Forest Baptist also will continue to offer COVID-19 vaccine clinics with Pfizer (ages 16 and up) and Moderna (ages 18 and up).
Appointments are available by calling 336-70-COVID or online through myWakeHealth or walk-ins are also available for either Johnson & Johnson vaccine clinics or first-dose Pfizer and Moderna vaccine clinics.
After very a careful and thorough review the CDC, and FDA determined that the known and potential benefits of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine outweigh the known and potential risks.
