Beaufort County To Receive Allocations of One-Shot COVID-19 Vaccine From Johnson & Johnson

Press Release:

    Beaufort County will be receiving allocations of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, developed by Janssen. Like the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccine protects against virus-related hospitalization and death. This vaccine is a one dose shot series. The vaccine is said to be 66% protective against moderate to severe Covid infection and 85% effective in protecting against severe disease. There are possible temporary reactions, such as a sore arm, fever, headache or feeling tired and achy for a day or two. All of the COVID-19 vaccines currently authorized were built upon decades of previous work on similar vaccines.

    Beaufort County Health Department will not be using the J&J vaccine to vaccinate those coming through the public community vaccine clinics at this time. Initial allocations of J&J vaccine received by Beaufort County's Health Department will be used for targeted vaccination efforts. If you are interested in the J&J vaccine, we recommend you reaching out to your local pharmacy. O'neals Pharmacy will be offering the J&J vaccine and can be contacted at 943-2643 or 946-4000. For more information regarding the J&J vaccine, you can visit our website HERE or you can visit HERE.

    Currently, we are in Phase 3 of vaccinations, which includes essential workers. To be considered an essential worker you must have a lot of interaction with the public. To make an appointment, call the COVID-19 hotline at 252-940-6150 or via the online appointment link HERE.

    If you have already received your vaccine and have an appointment with us, please call 252-940-6150 or email bchealth@bchd.net to cancel your appointment. Please continue to monitor HERE for updated information regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as the transitions as we move through the various phases of vaccination.

    Thank you,
