Mercy Health pausing distribution of Janssen/Johnson and Johnson (J&J) vaccine following CDC and FDA recommendation
Mercy Health is following this recommendation and will not distribute any additional doses of the Janssen/J&J COVID-19 vaccine to patients at this time. Ensuring our patient’s health is key to everything we do, and that’s one of the reasons we are taking this recommendation seriously.
Right now, these adverse events appear to be extremely rare. However, if you have received the Janssen/J&J vaccine and develop severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within three weeks after vaccination, contact your health care provider.
One of the most important tools for successful weight loss is counseling and professional support. Providing these forms of weight loss assistance are the cornerstones of our practice. It is undeniable that making and keeping a commitment to weight loss is challenging both emotionally and physically. Good health almost always requires lifestyle changes that are difficult to make without help. With the support of our licensed counseling professionals, you can create a treatment plan that will help you be more successful in meeting your weight loss goals with or without surgery.
