A mass COVID-19 vaccination site in Colorado was shut down after widespread adverse effects were reported, officials have confirmed.
Hundreds of people scheduled to receive their vaccine were turned away as reports of adverse side effects began surfacing.
The specific vaccine being administered at this site is the J&J vaccine.
It is currently unclear if and when the site intends to re-open.

The vaccine is intended to keep people safe from the CCP virus.
However, there have been numerous reports of terrible side effects.
In some rare instances, the recipients have even died!
Now, an entire vaccination site has been shut down due to widespread adverse effects.
The Epoch Times confirms:
A mass vaccination site at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Colorado was shut down after several adverse reactions to the Johnson & Johnson CCP virus vaccine, said Centura Health, which is managing the site.
More than 600 people who had appointments were turned away from the “Vaccines for All” event in Commerce City after 11 people who were administered the shot developed adverse reactions during the on-site observation period, Kevin Massey, a spokesperson for Centura Health, told local news outlets.
“Following the administration of the J&J vaccine and during onsite observation, we saw a limited number of adverse reactions to the vaccine,” Centura Health said in a separate statement. “We followed our protocols and in an abundance of caution, made the decision—in partnership with the state—to pause operations for the remainder of the day.”
The Colorado Department of Public Health said some patients experienced nausea and dizziness after getting the J&J vaccine, while Centura confirmed that nine individuals were monitored on-site and were sent home and two individuals were taken to nearby hospitals out of an abundance of caution.
“Over 1,700 patients received their shots today, and the 640 patients who were unable to receive their vaccine this afternoon will automatically be rescheduled for Sunday, April 11, at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Our goal is to continue to vaccinate Coloradans as quickly as possible while keeping our patients’ safety at the forefront,” said Centura.
Massey told the Denver Post that the number of people who experienced adverse reactions was about 0.8 percent.
“We followed our protocols and, in an abundance of caution, made the decision—in partnership with the state—to pause operations for the remainder of the day,” Massey said.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a one-dose vaccine for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which causes COVID-19. That’s opposed to the two-shot Moderna and Pfizer vaccines that are also approved for emergency use in the United States.
Before Wednesday’s event, the state health department recorded 10 reactions at Colorado’s community mass-vaccination sites, according to the paper.
Reactions to COVID-19 vaccines have been reported in recent weeks, including a Virginia man who suffered a reported skin reaction after what doctors said was from the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Colorado Health officials, following the closure of the site, stressed that getting the vaccine is “far safer than getting severely sick with COVID-19.”
It is being reported that those who experienced side effects were mostly experiencing dizziness and naseau.
Some were even transported to the local hospital.

An estimated 1/3 of all Americans have received at least one shot of the vaccine.
It is unclear how many Americans intend to get vaccinated.
However, reports of adverse effects are certainly casting doubt for those on the fence.
The New York Post has more details on the side effects that were being reported:
The 11 people who suffered adverse reactions to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine — prompting the closure of a vaccination site in Colorado — experienced symptoms including nausea and dizziness, according to health officials.
Two people within that group were also taken to the hospital for further observation, the Denver Post reported, citing a statement from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
The nine others were treated with juice and water, state officials said.
The health department stressed that the side effects experienced Wednesday were “consistent with what can be expected” with the one-shot dose. It said the decision to close the vaccination site at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City was made out of an abundance of caution.
“The state has no reason to believe that people who were vaccinated today at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park should be concerned,” the health department said.
“In most cases, discomfort from fever or pain after getting the vaccine is normal.”
More than 1,700 people were jabbed at the site on Wednesday — and the 11 who fell ill represented just 0.8 percent, noted Kevin Massey, a spokesman for Centura Health.
“We followed our protocols and, in an abundance of caution, made the decision — in partnership with the state — to pause operations for the remainder of the day,” Massey told the Denver Post.
Will you be getting the vaccine?
We believe that everyone in America has the FREEDOM to make the CHOICE that is right for them.
