Federal health officials found no safety issues with the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine after a North Carolina vaccination site was temporarily shut down due to a "limited number of adverse reactions."
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) analyzed the vaccine lot at the PNC Arena clinic in Wake County after 18 people had reactions during the required post-vaccination monitoring period earlier in the day.

Out of more than 2,300 Johnson & Johnson vaccine shots administered, 14 patients suffered "minor reactions" and were "treated on site," according to county officials. Four others were transported to area hospitals for observation and all but one have already been released.
Officials did not disclose the types of reactions but said they were "consistent with known common side effects" of the vaccine.
