Trenton Pauses Use of Johnson & Johnson Vaccine

Trenton, N.J. – Mayor W. Reed Gusciora today announced that the City of Trenton Department of Health and Human Services has followed guidance issued just this morning by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the N.J. Department of Health to pause any use of the Johnson & Johnson single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.

According to the N.J. Department of Health, the CDC and the FDA are reviewing the data involving six reported cases – among nearly seven million doses administered in the U.S. – in women between the ages of 18 and 48 who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Symptoms occurred six to 13 days after vaccination. In these cases, a type of blood clot called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis was seen in combination with low levels of blood platelets.

Both the CDC and FDA have said that these adverse events are extremely rare. According to the FDA and CDC, individuals who have received the vaccine and develop abdominal pain, leg pain, shortness of breath, severe headache or other unusual symptoms within three weeks after vaccination should contact their health care provider.

The City of Trenton has issued approximately 3,000 Johnson & Johnson vaccines. Most of these vaccines were administered during the joint federal, state, and city vaccine clinic that concluded two weeks ago. The City has not received any reports that those vaccinations have resulted in the same adverse effects referenced above. However, City health officers will review their records and contact any individuals who fit the demographics mentioned in today’s federal guidance.

Due to this development, the City’s homebound resident vaccination program – which uses the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine because it is easier to transport and requires only one appointment – will be paused until further notice. City health officers will be in constant contact with the approximately 100 individuals who have just been vaccinated as part of this campaign. The City is also evaluating alternative plans, including the use of other types of vaccines, to still get this vulnerable population protected from COVID-19.

Trenton will continue to administer its weekly allotment of Moderna Vaccines.

Any Trenton residents who have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, either during the homebound campaign that started yesterday or the clinic at Trenton Central High School two weeks ago, can call 609-815-2180 with any questions. As per the CDC guidance, any individual who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and experiences abdominal pain, leg pain, shortness of breath, severe headache or other unusual symptoms within three weeks after vaccination should contact their health care provider.

Trenton, N.J. – el alcalde W. Reed Gusciora anunció hoy que el Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos de la Ciudad de Trenton ha seguido la orientación dada esta mañana por los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC), la Administración de Alimentos y medicamentos (FDA) de los Estados Unidos y el N.J. Departamento de Salud para interrumpir cualquier uso de la vacuna de dosis única COVID-19 de Johnson & Johnson.

Según el N.J. El Departamento de Salud, los CDC y la FDA están revisando los datos que involucran seis casos reportados – entre casi siete millones de dosis administradas en los EE.UU. – en mujeres entre las edades de 18 y 48 años que recibieron la vacuna Johnson & Johnson. Los síntomas ocurrieron entre seis y 13 días después de la vacunación. En estos casos, se observó un tipo de coágulo de sangre llamado trombosis del seno venoso cerebral en combinación con niveles bajos de plaquetas sanguíneas

Tanto los CDC como la FDA han dicho que estos eventos adversos son extremadamente raros. De acuerdo con la FDA y los CDC, las personas que han recibido la vacuna y desarrollan dolor abdominal, dolor en las piernas, dificultad para respirar, dolor de cabeza severo u otros síntomas inusuales dentro de las tres semanas después de la vacunación deben ponerse en contacto con su proveedor de atención médica.

La Ciudad de Trenton ha emitido aproximadamente 3.000 vacunas Johnson & Johnson. La mayoría de estas vacunas se administraron durante la clínica de vacunas conjunta federal, estatal y municipal que concluyó hace dos semanas. La Ciudad no ha recibido ningún informe de que esas vacunas hayan resultado en los mismos efectos adversos mencionados anteriormente. Sin embargo, los oficiales de salud de la Ciudad revisarán sus registros y contactarán a cualquier persona que se ajuste a la demografía mencionada en la guía federal de hoy.

Debido a este desarrollo, el programa de vacunación de residentes confinados en casa de la Ciudad – que usa la vacuna de dosis única Johnson & Johnson porque es más fácil de transportar y requiere solo una cita – será pausado hasta nuevo aviso. Los funcionarios de salud de la ciudad estarán en contacto constante con las aproximadamente 100 personas que acaban de vacunarse como parte de esta campaña. La Ciudad también está evaluando planes alternativos, incluyendo el uso de otros tipos de vacunas, para obtener esta vulnerab

Trenton continuará administrando su asignación semanal de vacunas Moderna.

Cualquier residente de Trenton que haya recibido la vacuna Johnson & Johnson, ya sea durante la campaña en casa que comenzó ayer o la clínica en Trenton Central High School hace dos semanas, puede llamar al 609-815-2180 con cualquier pregunta. De acuerdo con la guía de los CDC, cualquier persona que recibió la vacuna Johnson & Johnson y experimenta dolor abdominal, dolor en las piernas, dificultad para respirar, dolor de cabeza severo u otros síntomas inusuales dentro de las tres semanas después de la vacunación debe contactar a su proveedor de atención médica.

Trenton Launches Homebound Resident Vaccination Campaign

Trenton, N.J. – Mayor W. Reed Gusciora today announced that the City of Trenton Department of Health and Human Services is starting a homebound vaccination program this Monday, April 12, 2021 that will bring 1,000 Johnson & Johnson single-dose COVID-19 vaccines to Trenton residents who are unable to get to a vaccine clinic on their own.

In-home vaccinations will be provided to individuals – age 18 or over – who are immobile due to underlying medical conditions or transportation limitations. Homebound residents or their relatives can call (609) 815-2556 or email amthomas@trentonnj.org to schedule an in-home vaccine appointment.

All in-home vaccinations will be administered by qualified medical professionals who will use the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine, which is easier to transport and requires only one appointment. City medical staff will wait 15 to 30 minutes with each patient after administering the vaccine to monitor for side effects.

The city already has a list of 400 individuals for the program and is scheduled to visit multiple senior and high-density housing locations over the next few weeks including South Village, Luther Arms, Kingsbury Towers, Trent Center East, Trent Center West, North 25, and numerous residential properties throughout Trenton.

This effort was made possible due to ongoing support from the Trenton Health Team, the Henry J. Austin Medical Center, the Mercer County Board of Social Services, Trenton Housing Authority, Mercer County Meals on Wheels and the Trenton Council of Civic Associations.

“As we navigate our way out of this pandemic, the last thing we want is for our most vulnerable populations to fall behind,” said Mayor Gusciora. “If you can’t come to us, we’ll come to you. We won’t emerge from this crisis unless all of our residents have equal access to the vaccine, and we won’t rest until that goal is realized.”

This is one of many efforts taking place in Trenton to ensure that minority communities or individuals who face certain economic and health conditions do not fall behind in the state vaccine rollout. Just last week, Trenton finished a joint federal, state, and city vaccine clinic that brought 3,000 vaccines to Trenton’s religious congregations. The success of those efforts in Trenton resulted in the state allocating an additional 2,000 vaccines to the City that were also administered last week.

“We’ve shown time and time again that this City will use every resource at its disposal to get the job done,” said Dr. Adela M. Ames-Lopez, Director of Health and Human Services. “Every vaccine we’ve received has been used, and our efficiency at every vaccine clinic has helped us build a supportive network of state, federal, health care, and community partners who came together to provide this critical service to our most vulnerable residents.”

As always, all residents interested in the vaccine should reserve a spot at the state portal at covidvaccine.nj.gov. and contact the City Department of Health at (609)-989-3242 or covidvac@trentonnj.org.

The City of Trenton Department of Health and Human Services has directly administered a total of 11,800 vaccines, which does not include thousands of other Trentonians that have been vaccinated by Mercer County, Henry J. Austin, area pharmacies, and other entities.

Trenton has had a total of 6,700 COVID-19 cases and 87 related deaths to date.
