CLEVELAND — Editor's note: the video in the player above is from a previously published story.
On Wednesday, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced that the mass vaccination site at Cleveland State's Wolstein Center will continue to use the Pfizer vaccine following the temporary pause of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently paused the vaccine made by Johnson & Johnson after six women had adverse reactions to the one-dose shot.
The Wolstein Center was originally slated to begin administering the Johnson and Johnson vaccine on Monday, April 26.
The clinic was only slated to run for eight weeks, originally, with the first six being used specifically for the two-shot Pfizer vaccine.
"The goal will be to extend that and to extend that a couple of weeks. Next week we will start the seventh week with Pfizer, and most likely the eighth week with Pfizer," DeWine elaborated on the mass vaccination site.
DeWine also said later in the press briefing that the Wolstein Center site could run for as long as four additional weeks, but did not confirm anything, officially.
