Update regarding the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) Vaccine:

Following the recommendations of the FDA, CDC and the State of Connecticut Department of Public Health, Yale New Haven Health has paused using the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine. We have currently substituted Johnson & Johnson with either Pfizer or Moderna at our vaccine sites. Please access our online calendar to review current schedule of COVID-19 vaccines.

If you were previously scheduled to receive Johnson & Johnson and you do not wish to be vaccinated with Pfizer or Moderna, you may cancel your appointment through MyChart or via our call center at 833-ASK-YNHH (833-275-9644).

Yale New Haven Health System and our government agencies all take vaccine safety extremely seriously. Although the reported complications are extremely rare, we will await the results of the CDC’s investigation over the next few days before proceeding with further use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
