KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The second mass vaccination clinic scheduled to take place at Arrowhead Stadium has been canceled.

The clinic was originally planned for April 29 and April 30.

At the vaccination clinic in March at Arrowhead, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was administered.

A representative from the Jackson County Health Department says the cancellation is due to the pause in the J & J vaccine. They say the stadium and National Guard were not available to administer a second dose if they were to use the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommended the pause last week as the FDA and CDC investigate cases of blood clotting.

Other appointments are still available in both Kansas and Missouri.
