  • “We got to make that transition,” Fauci said. “If you are going into a completely crowded situation where people are essentially falling all over each other, then you wear a mask.”

US calls for pause to J&J COVID-19 vaccine over rare blood clots

  • The move comes a week after European regulators said they had found a possible link between AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine and a rare blood clotting problem that had led to a small number of deaths.
  • Johnson & Johnson's (J&J) single dose vaccine - most COVID-19 shots are delivered over two doses - and AstraZeneca's low-cost vaccine are seen as vital tools in the fight against a pandemic that has claimed more than three million lives.
