COVID-19 Vaccine Information for

Woodbury County

 

Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine Update: 

On April 12, 2021, the CDC and FDA announced a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine due to a small number of reports of a rare and severe type of blood clot, in order to further review these cases and assess their significance.  There have been 6 cases of this type of blood clot reported out of over 6.8 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine that have been administered in the US, so it is extremely rare with less than one case for each one million doses administered.     

SDHD will be pausing use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine until further notice; however, this vaccine is only a very small percentage of the vaccine that has been given in Woodbury County.  SDHD did have some small clinics planned to administer Johnson & Johnson vaccine this week that will be postponed at this time.

Move Your Way CampaignSM

Siouxland District Health Department has been selected as one of eight communities from across the nation, to pilot the Move Your Way Campaign SM over the next nine months. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services created the Move Your Way campaign to promote the second edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. It aims to help people understand how much physical activity they need to be healthy and how to fit it into their daily lives.

The campaign has videos, fact sheets, posters, and interactive tools in English and Spanish that are free and easy to use and distribute. These materials promote friendly, practical key messages, like “lots of things count as physical activity” and “it all adds up!”
