Waay 31's breken terry spoke to health professionals about the pause.

And they say this could cause people to not want to get vaccinated.

Vo: med plus medical director kip george said he's waiting to let the cdc and others figure out whats going on with the johnson and johnson vaccine.

He said if it's a statistical anomoly and they get the greenlight they will give it out.

If not they will throw their doses away.

He said either way this makes people more scared to take any coronavirus vaccine.

Sot <i think there's a lot of hesitancy anyway with some of the reactions were having with some of the other vaccines.

I'm afraid it's going to slow the progression of getting people vaccinated.
