Vaccination appointments keep pace for Gundersen Health System following pause for Johnson & Johnson vaccine

A little more than 161,000 doses of the J&J vaccine

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Staff at Gundersen Health System continues to fill appointments for COVID-19 vaccines even after the CDC pulled the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

Gundersen was administering Johnson & Johnson.

As of Tuesday, none of it’s patients who received the J&J vaccine had reported a severe reaction.

And news about J&J possibility causing blood clots, has not slowed down vaccine requests.

“We did have a few Johnson and Johnson’s, but we don’t expect it to change stuff too much. Obviously a few people have questions. But from what I’ve found talking with people is their still confident about Pfizera and Moderna,” said Gundersen Health System Scheduling Specialist Shane Summers.

Vaccinators administered 161,621 doses of the one dose Johnson and Johnson state-wide.

That is part of the nearly 3.7 million doses of all three vaccines combined.
