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."
