Curi Updates One-Dose Vaccine Consent Form

Following the decision last Friday by the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to lift the pause on administering Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose COVID-19 vaccine, the Curi team has updated our consent form for providers giving the vaccine to use with patients. The updated form can be found here.

All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
