Johns Hopkins University and Medicine: latest news and guidelines
Johns Hopkins USFHP is working hard to make it easy for you to take advantage of COVID-19 testing and vaccines and to get the health care you need during the pandemic. Three COVID-19 vaccines have been authorized by the FDA. However, Johns Hopkins Medicine, along with many COVID-19 vaccine providers and sites, have temporarily stopped using the Johnson & Johnson/Jansen vaccine at the recommendation of the CDC and FDA.

The Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines have been thoroughly tested and found to be safe and effective in preventing severe COVID-19, and are undergoing continuous and intense safety monitoring. To date, there is an excellent safety record reported among millions of people who have received the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Learn more.
