Hidalgo County follows CDC’s advice and suspends the J&J vaccine


After yesterday’s statement from the CDC and the FDA recommending the pause on Johnson & Johnson / Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, the Hidalgo County Homebound COVID-19 vaccination program has decided to temporarily discontinue the usage of the vaccine.

Hidalgo County Judge Richard F. Cortez announce the decision on his social media.

For those residents who already received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine and have not had a reaction, Health officials recommend staying calm and monitor any symptoms they may have.

The county homebound vaccination program was announced last week and homebound and elderly residents can call 956-292-7765 to set up an appointment with the county to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at home.
