News 3 is taking action to help you navigate vaccination clinics as the Johnson and Johnson vaccine is paused. All information below is coming from city and state officials.

James City County
The city acknowledges concerns around the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and is working on an alternate plan. The Greater Williamsburg Clinic was scheduled to hold its largest vaccination clinic April 14 using the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The county wrote: "We urge those registered for tomorrow to keep their appointments." It added, "The Greater Williamsburg Clinic has been issuing Moderna to its communities for months as proven vaccine options."
If you would like to keep your appointment, you do not have to do anything. If you need to cancel your appointment, please email WJCCCOVIDVaccineclinic@jamescitycountyva.gov. Questions? Call 877-724-1954. Please note that no new appointments are being scheduled for Wednesday, April 14.

Elizabeth City, NC
The Albemarle Regional Health Services has canceled the Johnson and Johnson vaccine clinics scheduled for April 14-16, in Currituck, Hertford, Pasquotank, and Perquimans counties. Until ARHS receives an OK to administer the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, they encourage residents to get one of the available vaccines.

ARHS is still accepting appointments for Moderna first dose vaccines at each of their local health departments.
The 2nd dose Moderna Vaccination Clinic will continue at the Perquimans County Recreation Department on Thursday, April 15, 1-3pm.

Hampton
The Hampton Roads Convention Center is hosting clinics Wednesday, April 14 and Thursday, April 15. Both are still planned to continue; however, on Thursday, those pre-registered will be offered a vaccine from either Pfizer or Moderna instead of the originally-planned Johnson & Johnson.

Norfolk
Military Circle Mall continues to distribute the Pfizer vaccine. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine was planned for a later date, several weeks from now. It's unclear how the pause will affect that. Meanwhile, those wanting the Pfizer dose can still do so. Click here for more information.
