Federal health agencies are planning to announce a new warning this week into the possibility that Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine may be linked to a serious but rare side effect called Guillain-Barre syndrome, according to reports by the Washington Post. The CDC is stressing that the benefits of the vaccine still outweigh the potential risk of the rare side effect.

Officials announced 227 new, positive cases and 4 new deaths. Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 895,552 cases in the state and 26,509 confirmed and probable deaths.
