A mass vaccination site at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Colorado has been closed after several adverse reactions to the Johnson & Johnson CCP virus vaccine, said Centura Health, which operates the site.
More than 600 people who had appointments were turned away from the “Vaccines for All” event in Commerce City after 11 people who received the vaccine developed adverse reactions during the parallel observation period, Kevin Massey, a spokesperson for Centura Health, told local media.
“Following the administration of the J&J vaccine and during the on-site observation, we observed a limited number of adverse reactions to the vaccine”, Centura Health said in a separate statement.
The Colorado Department of Public Health said some patients experienced nausea and dizziness after receiving the J&J vaccine, while Centura confirmed nine people were monitored on site and sent home and two people were taken to nearby hospitals out of caution.
