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 Sports 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.

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.

"The state has no reason to believe that people who were vaccinated today at Dick's Sporting Goods Park should be concerned," the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment said.

“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.

The 640 people who were turned away Wednesday will be rescheduled to Sunday and will receive Pfizer’s shot — which was previously scheduled for use that day, according to state officials.
