Westchester County Executive George Latimer said that the Department of Health is suspending the use of Johnson & Johnson vaccines following a recent rash of severe side effects linked to the one-dose vaccination and a decision by the FDA and CDC to pause the rollout.

As of Thursday, April 15, Latimer said that 44.6 percent of Westchester residents have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, with nearly 30 percent receiving both doses to complete the vaccination series.

There have been 188,520 people (2,485 on Wednesday, April 14) vaccinated at the Westchester County Center, 40,563 (801) at Department of Health sites, and 46,363 (1,089) at the Yonkers Armory.

In total, 275,446 vaccines have been administered at the three sites, according to the county Department of Health.

Latimer also noted that there will be a new pop-up site open at the Port Chester Senior Center between 9 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. on Friday, April 16. Anyone interested in booking an appointment can call (914) 939-4974.

There are now 4,462 active COVID-19 cases in Westchester, down from 4,757 earlier this week, while the number of patients being treated for the virus in county hospitals is under 200, which Latimer said: "is a good sign and is going in a good direction."
