North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen will give a media briefing regarding COVID-19 on Tuesday at 2 p.m.

Division of Public Health Pharmacist Dr. Amanda Fuller Moore is also expected to participate.

The state is pausing its use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at their clinics, following recommendations this morning from the CDC and FDA.

Following those recommendations, NCDHHS said in a statement: "Our primary concern is the health and safety of all North Carolinians… The safety system in place is working as it should. If you have an appointment for Pfizer or Moderna, please go to your appointment as planned. If you have an appointment for Johnson & Johnson, your appointment will be re-scheduled."
