SC Lede: J&J 2 — The Return

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Wallensky warns of a potential fourth surge during a White House COVID Response Team meeting on Monday, March 29, 2021.
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky lifted the temporary pause on the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after 15 people out of 8 million reported having severe but rare blood clots that resulted in three deaths. Health officials determined that the benefits of the vaccine and lives saved as a result of it far outweigh the potential side effects.

On this episode of the South Carolina Lede for April 27, 2021, we look at the week ahead for South Carolina lawmakers, get an update on how important the manufacturing industry is to the state, discuss the latest on the return of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, and more.

We want to hear from you! Leave us a 1-minute long voicemail at 803-563-7169 to tell us what your life has been like over the past year.
