What to do if you received the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine

If you received the Johnson & Johnson Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, your risk of having a blood clot is also very low and that risk will decrease over time.

Contact your healthcare provider and seek medical treatment urgently if you develop any of the following symptoms:

  • Severe headache
  • Backache
  • New neurologic symptoms
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Leg swelling
  • Tiny red spots on the skin (petechiae)
  • New or easy bruising

If you have any adverse events after vaccination, report them to v-safe and the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.
