Broome has 33 doses available for appointments Thursday afternoon (April 29) at the SUNY Broome Ice Center while over 380 first-doses of the Moderna vaccine were said to be available for residents age 18 and over from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., also Thursday.  Register online at

The advantage of the Janssen J&J vaccine is that it only requires 1 dose, making it easier for people who don’t like needles and hard-to-reach populations.  The possible complications in 15 women under the age of 50 who developed rare blood clots in the brain have not been definitively linked to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is advising caution and a possible warning for women age 18 to 49 to look for side effects like severe headache, stomach and leg pain.
