(Fox Business) A vaccination site in Colorado closed early Wednesday after a “limited number” of people began having adverse reactions to the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, resulting in hundreds of people who waited in line for hours being sent home without receiving a shot.
The site at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, eight miles northeast of Denver, closed around 90 minutes early at 3:30 p.m., FOX Denver 31 reported. More than 1,700 people received vaccine shots at the site Wednesday.
“Following the administration of the J&J vaccine and during onsite observation, we saw a limited number of adverse reactions to the vaccine,” a statement from Centra Health, which runs the site, to Fox News reads. “We followed our protocols and in an abundance of caution, made the decision – in partnership with the state – to pause operations for the remainder of the day.”
