(KWQC) - TV6 is providing the latest with the COVID-19 vaccination on the national level and on the local level. We’re working to keep viewers up-to-date on the latest in Iowa and in Illinois.

The only COVID-19 vaccinations currently authorized are the Pfizer-BioNTech, the Moderna and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

On Tuesday, April 13, the U.S. recommended a “pause” in using the single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine to investigate reports of rare but potentially dangerous blood clots. Health officials in Iowa and in Illinois both addressed that Tuesday and notified all vaccine providers in the states to suspend usage of the vaccine until further notice.

Illinois
