If you received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine less than three weeks ago, here are symptoms you should be watching for, although serious side effects have been very rare.
- Severe headache
- Abdominal pain
- Leg pain
- Shortness of breath
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are reviewing data involving the single-dose COVID-19 vaccine made by Johnson & Johnson and six cases of a rare and severe blood clot that affected women between the ages of 18 and 48.
The women’s symptoms occurred between six and 13 days after the shot. One died and one is in critical condition, federal officials said Tuesday morning.
