CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Corpus Christi – Nueces County Public Health District will resume the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after a pause was put in place on Tuesday, April 13. As of Friday, April 23, the Centers for Disease Control Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (AIP) recommended that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine be available to individuals 18 years of age and older.

The Department of State Health Services has asked all providers to resume administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine with updated health fact sheets provided to all vaccine recipients.

“While racing against the variants, the Health District is glad to have a vaccine that only requires one dose in their toolbox,” says Public Health Director Annette Rodriguez.

Currently, the Health District has approximately 300 Johnson & Johnson vaccines. They will only be available to the public at the La Palmera vaccine location, formerly the Charming Charlie store beginning Monday, April 26.
