A mass vaccination site in Denver halted operations Wednesday, and another in Raleigh, N.C., stopped using the J&J vaccine Thursday. The Centers for Disease Control is also investigating a shutdown in Iowa, according to the AP.

Of the eight people who suffered adverse effects at Cumming Fairgrounds, about 35 miles north of Atlanta, one person was hospitalized and seven others were monitored onsite before being sent home, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. The site administered 425 shots Wednesday.

Coronavirus vaccinations around the world

In clinical trials, the most common side effects of the Johnson & Johnson-Janssen vaccine were headaches and fatigue, followed by muscle aches, nausea and fever.

Multiple people fainted after getting the shot in North Carolina and Georgia, the AP reported.

More than 66 million people in the U.S., about 20% of the nation’s population, have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to Centers for Disease Control data. More than 1.6 million Georgia residents have been fully vaccinated, according to state data, around 16% of the Peach State’s population.
