One of the six women died, health officials said. All six are between the ages of 18 and 48. The CDC and FDA said the clots occurred 6 to 13 days after vaccination.
More than 6.8 million doses of the J&J vaccine have been administered in the U.S., the vast majority with no or mild side effects. The other two authorized vaccines, from Moderna and Pfizer, make up the vast share of COVID-19 shots administered in the U.S. and are not affected by the pause.
