Question: What should I know about the Johnson & Johnson Janssen Vaccine pause?
Answer: On April 13, 2021, CDC and FDA recommended a pause in the use of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine. Of the nearly 7 million doses administered so far in the United States, a small number of reports of a rare and severe type of blood clot have been reported in people after receiving the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine.
We do not know enough yet to say if the vaccine is related to or caused this health issue. To be extra careful, CDC and FDA recommend that the vaccine not be given until we learn more. For more information, visit the CDC website
Question: Are off-campus students allowed to attend events on campus during Spring Quarter?
Answer: Opportunities for limited in-person events
for our students, staff and faculty are now available and include graduation ceremonies and celebrations, dance practices, packaging and distribution (e.g., DIY kits), and speaker engagements. As we continue to limit the spread of COVID-19, in-person planned events must be held outdoors in accordance with county and campus guidelines. All current UC San Diego students are allowed to attend on campus events at this time.
