DEERFIELD, Ill., April 13, 2021 – Following today’s recommendation from the FDA and CDC for a pause in the use of the J&J vaccine out of an abundance of caution, we are immediately suspending the administration of the J&J vaccine at our stores and off-site clinics and are awaiting further guidance. We are reaching out to patients with scheduled appointments and rescheduling vaccinations from other manufacturers, as supply allows.
 
We will continue to work closely with the FDA and CDC and, as always, the health and safety of our patients and customers is our highest priority.
