After Fruitful 'Pause,' CDC, FDA Agree Johnson & Johnson Covid Vaccinations Can Continue


    1. @Christopher McTighe fingers crossed I’m still alive & able, and haven’t succumbed to my vaccination. Still doing good from the measles and polio vaccines I got 35 years ago.

    2. @J. Karpinski weird how those big fancy iron lungs seemed to just vanish a few years after the advent of the polio vaccine.

    1. yes this is why women over 35 cant take the pill because the risk of blood clots increases after age 35

  1. They should look at if these women were taking oral birth control. That can increase the stroke risk in some young women. Especially if there’s a history of migraines.

  2. Give me a break, the women who had a stroke after being vaccinated must have more in common than just being young.

    1. The normal incidence of the type of clots (cerebral venous sinus thrombosis) that J&J vaccine is being blamed for is 3-4 cases in 1 million.

      Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is rare, with an estimated 3-4 cases per million annual incidence in adults. While it may occur in all age groups, it is most common in the third decade. 75% are female. Given that older studies show no difference in incidence between men and women, it has been suggested that the use of oral contraceptives in women is behind the disparity between the sexes.

      So the other thing they are likely have in common is taking oral contraceptives.

  3. What I’m hearing is “your sacrifice is worth it for others” when there are safer alternatives out there.
    The other two vaccines have a higher efficacy rate after just one dose than the J&J vaccine.

    Sounds like money to me.

    1. J&J also has benefits that the others don’t. It doesn’t require extreme cold to maintain and, with just 1 shot, it’s ideal to vaccinate communities that don’t have established health infrastructure (think homeless camps or even prisons, rural communities).

  4. “…CDC, FDA Agree Johnson & Johnson Covid Vaccinations Can (Resume)…” thereby motivating us, the people of America, to redouble our efforts to rapidly find out at any given moment, including even while On-Line, who among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e. pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic) in order to “Convince It Forward” for them to call their doctor and to self-quarantine per CDC guidelines in hopes of stopping this pandemic instead of having more “Mourning In America.” Thus, we’re hoping for the best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the “UK variant” strain(s) mutations and others like the South African, Brazilian, Californian, Texan (BV-1) & “Cluster 5 Mink” mutations rendering current vaccines no longer effective.

  5. Why don’t the doctors just tell Everyone what that “special” treatment is, so that people can tell their doctor if they don’t know? Why so secret?

  6. exactly im in the uk, and had the Astra Zenica JAb, and it made me vvery sick from having it very sick for 48 hours, then i was ok, but i would say its worth it, get it taken, and think if you do have the side effects like covid, then think about how bad it would have been had you caught the real thing

    1. @Pascal Therrien yes i know, HOWEVER the BMI has just released findings that the Astra zenica one (and the pfizer) , is the vaccine that it does something the other vaccines dont, it stops the spread of covid upto 65% and it stops you getting it in the first place, instead of just stopping you get ill like moderna other one, thats because the astra zenica went about theres a different way

      however there is a big chance it doesnt work on the indian varient of the virus

    2. @Pascal Therrien thats the relief. because i wear a mask, i socially distance and carry iso with me at all times. i dont use public transport i dont go to the pubs. and i take vit D and now ive had the vaccine. one shot of the astra zenica gives me 76% immunity. for 90 days, yes its not perfect yes i know i can still ge it, and yes it made me very very ill for 1 night. so ill i only hgad one beer, and a large fish and chips, because it made me feel sick, had the shivers and couldnt breath, then after one night i was back on the last drinking 8 cans of beer and eating 3 kebabs, so yes its worth it

  7. As near as I can tell you don’t get to choose which vaccine is just right for you. You get to take what they’re giving.

  8. So the old man & I got the the J&J covid-19 vaccine on St. Patricks day and we are fine (I am 55). Please take care!!

  9. Facebook deletes a 100K plus user group that formed to record and discuss the side effects people experienced from the jab. Think about that.

  10. *From the vaccine consent form:* “I understand that the long-term side effects or complications of this vaccine are not known at this time.”
