4th US Site Pauses COVID-19 Vaccinations After Adverse Reactions

“The reactions were consistent with common reactions in adults being vaccinated with any vaccine, but due to the number of individuals affected, the site stopped the J&J vaccinations to evaluate,” Georgia health officials said in a statement.

A fourth vaccination site in the United States has paused giving shots after a batch of adverse reactions.


Injections at the Cumming Fairgrounds in Forsyth County have been halted after eight people experienced adverse reactions post-vaccination, the Georgia Department of Health said Friday.


One person was evaluated at the hospital and released while the others were monitored onsite and later sent home.


All eight received Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine.


COVID-19 is the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.


“The reactions were consistent with common reactions in adults being vaccinated with any vaccine, but due to the number of individuals affected, the site stopped the J&J vaccinations to evaluate,” Georgia health officials said in a statement.


In total, 425 people received vaccines at the fairgrounds on the day the adverse reactions were seen.


“There is no reason to believe there is anything wrong with the vaccine itself, and other individuals who have received the J&J vaccine should not be concerned,” Kathleen Toomey, the state’s health commissioner, said in a statement. “We are looking into what happened and what may have caused the reactions, including the conditions at the fairgrounds such as heat and the ability to keep the site cool.”


A mass vaccination site in Colorado was shut down earlier this week, as was a site in North Carolina, after a spate of post-vaccination adverse reactions.



“We are confident in saying that there is no reason for concern,” Colorado’s top medical officer later said after a review of each patient’s symptoms and an analysis of other vaccinations from the same lot.


A site in Iowa also experienced post-vaccination adverse reactions, Georgia officials said Friday.


The Iowa Department of Health’s phone line went straight to a recorded message on Saturday and its director did not respond to an email.
