Kroger immediately stopped administering the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine after the United States recommended a “pause” in its dispersal to investigate reports of potentially dangerous blood clots.
“Effective immediately, as we await further guidance from the FDA and CDC, the Kroger Pharmacies and Small Clinics will temporarily stop administering the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine,” Kroger said in a statement which got published on their official website.
In this regard, the “Kroger will continue to administer the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. When available, patients scheduled to receive the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer or Moderna will be provided with two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. “If a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is not available, Kroger will work with the patient to reschedule their vaccination appointment.”
