05:33

NBC News medical correspondent Dr. John Torres joins the 3rd Hour of TODAY and weighs in on the CDC and FDA recommendation that the U.S. pauses distribution of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. “They can’t make a direct link, but they just want to make sure that link is not there,” he says. “This is a message going out to doctors more than it is going out to the general public.” He also shares what recipients of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should know and how long he thinks the pause will last.
