• A joint statement released Sunday from eight Bay Area counties says locals of the region will soon have access to J&J COVID-19 vaccines. The counties — including the City of Berkeley — announced Sunday the single-shot vaccine will be available as early as this week for some denizens of the area, citing that "all vaccines are proven to be highly effective at preventing hospitalization or death from COVID-19, and people who are fully vaccinated are also much less likely to be contagious or transmit the virus to someone else."

Mind you though, there were less than 20 recorded cases of the rare blood clotting condition by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from the roughly 7 million Johnson & Johnson shots administered; the Bay Area man is described as being in his early thirties and having experienced the blood clot in his legs; he's since recovered.
