Dr. Vin Gupta: Blood Clots From J&J Vaccine ‘Exceptionally Rare’ | The ReidOut | MSNBC

 

Federal health authorities recommended that providers temporarily stop administering the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine while they investigate a potential link to very rare blood clots. Six women between the ages of 18 and 48 developed blood clots after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and the clots are considered extremely rare. This is out of the more than 6.8 million people in the U.S. have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Dr. Vin Gupta calls this "exceptionally rare, lower than the background rate … It's to alert folks like myself and my colleagues that this is happening, extremely rarely, but this needs to be treated differently than what you treat a blood clot."

    1. @ruth depew ahh a fellow homophobic woman. Good on ya. All my community asked is a full apology and to stop blaming the Russians for her words.

    1. @davey dudely That is too funny. I remember listening to a young white evangelical pastor in a church in Memphis, TN several years asgo where about 50% of the congregation was white and the other half people of color. He was responding to some of his white congregants concerns where they were trying to connect with Black folks, but they didn’t seem to be interested. His answer to them was similar to your statement i.e. “Why should they trust you?”. He went on to advise them that meeting them half way to form a relationship may be insufficient, and they had to be open to maybe giving more to break the cycle of cynicism and distrust from their damaged heritage.

  1. scary. i got the j&j vaccine. i had my doctors change my birth control last year because of my clot risk and now i have this vaccine. this is exactly why i was so reluctant to get vaccinated but i caved to peer pressure 🙄

    1. Your probably better off not also being on birth control pills. No one has said, but looking at the gender and age group, I wonder if all six women were also on birth control pills.

  2. Clinical trials showed no clots – even in Americans who clot at higher rates every year( poor diet) but of course nobody who had been infected with Covid was in these studies. People who have recently had Covid or may have asymptomatic disease are getting the vaccines and are at higher risk for clots than the already high baseline rate. CDC has not addressed this point but they should.

  3. exceptionally rare! though if you are the one person who dies from blood clots, you may not appreciate the rarity.

  4. The patients affected were 8 women between the ages of 18 and 48. Hmmm. Wonder if they were taking other medications such as hormonal contraceptives that already increase the chance of blood clots?

  5. The one in a million number is wrong, because as of yesterday 6.8 million doses have been administered, but it takes one to two weeks for the clots to form and present symptoms. Therefore, we should expect that people who have had the shot less than two weeks ago to have a few more cases. It is unlikely that the ratio will be worse than one in a half million.

  6. Extremely rare???You tell that to the families of the deceased people!!!Thry have a total different opinion!!!
