  2. Potential Risks: The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is associated with a rare but serious blood clot disorder known as thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS). It has also been linked to a rare neurological disorder called Guillain-Barré syndrome.

Approved Boosters for Johnson & Johnson's COVID Vaccine

If you have received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, it is recommended to take one of the bivalent booster doses two or more months later.
