(WXYZ) — We're taking a closer look at the developments surrounding the Johnson & Johnson vaccine with the state's Chief Medical Officer.

Dr. Joneigh Khaldun is joining us for the 7 UpFront segment tonight.

You can see the full interview in the video player above.

"Anyone who's received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should know that it's a good thing they are likely immune now and they likely will not have any adverse reactions," Dr. Khaldun says. "6.8 million doses of this vaccine have been administered across the country, more than 200,000 doses here in the state of Michigan, only 6 cases have been identified in the entire country. However, if someone has received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in the last few weeks and they have any symptoms of a blood clot, so headache, shortness of breath, perhaps leg pain, they should absolutely talk to their doctor and let their doctors know they did recently receive the vaccine."
