North Country Family Health Center (NCFHC) is following the CDC and FDA recommendation and will pause the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine effective immediately while these health and safety agencies evaluate next steps.
NCFHC will still hold their scheduled mobile vaccination clinic this evening at Mannsville Manor Elementary School, 423 North Main Street, Mannsville from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. and will offer the two dose Moderna vaccination to those who have already signed up for the clinic.
