Bon Secours pausing distribution of Janssen/Johnson and Johnson (J&J) vaccine following CDC and FDA recommendation
Bon Secours 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.
Diagnosing your lung condition correctly is the most important step to creating the most effective care plan possible. Whether it's asthma, COPD, emphysema or lung cancer, the earlier we can get started on treatment, the better. We're proud to offer a full range of programs as well as health care providers to quickly create a comprehensive treatment plan for you.
Conditions We Treat
Bronchitis is an infection in the bronchial tubes. Bronchitis can be acute or chronic and causes coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath from inflammation and mucus in the bronchial tubes.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive chronic lung disease that includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. COPD causes shortness of breath and other breathing related symptoms.
Emphysema is a type of COPD that occurs when the alveoli (air sacs in the lungs) are damaged. Emphysema often occurs after years of smoking.
Interstitial Lung Disease
Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is a large group of disorders that cause scarring of the lungs. ILD can come from exposure to hazardous materials over time. It can also be caused by an auto-immune disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
