MONTGOMERY-State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris announced Tuesday, out of an abundance of caution, Alabama will temporarily pause Johnson & Johnson shots being given in the state.

Dr. Harris said he hopes the pause won’t keep people from getting the COVID vaccine.

Governor Ivey has issued the following statement.

“COVID-19 vaccine safety is a top priority for Alabama. It is important to know that the adverse effects potentially stemming from the Johnson & Johnson shot have been extremely rare in the country, but out of an abundance of caution, Alabama is temporarily pausing these shots until we know more. I commend Dr. Harris for taking this swift step in our state so that we can continue moving forward, getting shots in the arms and putting COVID-19 behind us once and for all.”
