Federal health officials have informed state officials that a Texas woman has been hospitalized with possible blood clots associated with Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine recipients, a state spokesman said Thursday.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention informed the Texas Department of State Health Services of the situation Wednesday afternoon through the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, said DSHS spokesman Chris Van Deusen.
