TOPEKA (KSNT) — The CDC advisory board voted Friday afternoon to approve the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine following a temporary distribution pause.

It had been 11 days since distribution was paused due to a rare blood clot condition found in specifically women.

Many states, including Kansas, stopped use of the Johnson & Johnson shots that had already been delivered.
