Case updates April 12, 2021 - Pausing Johnson / Johnson vaccines; cases rising among King county residents in their 20s

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

King county positive case totals to date by age group
Distribution: Rate per 1,000


The state DOH will pause the use of the Johnson / Johnson (J/J) vaccine statewide starting immediately, following the guidance of the FDA/CDC. Six women who received the vaccine had blood clots and one died. There have been no cases of blood clots in Washington state. 

King county exec Dow Constantine: In the last week, King County had more people in their 20s hospitalized than those over 70. These new COVID variants are more transmissible, and we must continue to do all we can to stop their spread.

Vaccine Locations
Vaccine eligibility is open to people in Phase 1B tiers 3 and 4. On April 15, everyone is eligible. Some sites are taking pre-registrations.

The governor is moving three counties: Pierce, Whitman, and Cowlitz back to Phase 2. King county is still vulnerable because of rising case numbers.
