    White House Senior Coronavirus Coordinator Jeff Zients and director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci responded on Monday to a report from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommending an immediate “pause” in the use of Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.

    Fauci says Americans who’ve recently received a Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine shouldn’t be anxious about the “pause” in shots because of reports of blood clots.

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention called for the pause Tuesday to investigate six reports of potentially dangerous blood clots, among more than 6.8 million doses administered.

    The agencies said in a joint statement Tuesday that the pause has been recommended “out of an abundance of caution.”

    A timeframe for the pause is unclear, though the experts say it should be only a matter of days before a review and “aggressive outreach to clinicians” is completed.

    In This Story: Allergy

    Allergies are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to typically harmless substances in the environment. These include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, sneezing, a runny nose, shortness of breath, or swelling.

    Common allergens include pollen and certain foods. Metals and other substances may also cause problems. Food, insect stings, and medications are common causes of severe reactions. Their development is due to both genetic and environmental factors.

    Treatments for allergies include the avoidance of known allergens and the use of medications such as steroids and antihistamines. In severe reactions injectable adrenaline (epinephrine) is recommended.

    Allergies are common. In the developed world, about 20% of people are affected by allergic rhinitis, about 6% of people have at least one food allergy, and about 20% have atopic dermatitis at some point in time. Depending on the country about 1–18% of people have asthma. Anaphylaxis occurs in between 0.05–2% of people.
