Should the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Really Be Paused?

In what is certain to go down in history as the Biden Administration’s stupidest idea of the year, top health officials have paused distribution of the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID-19 vaccine after an insignificant number of patients developed a severe type of blood clot known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST). 

CVST has been reported by just 6 of the nearly 7 million people to receive the J&J shot. Of those 6, only 1 person has died.

“COVID-19 vaccine safety is a top priority for the federal government, and we take all reports of health problems following COVID-19 vaccination very seriously,” said FDA official Peter Marks and CDC official Anne Schuchat in a joint statement.

“That said, the pandemic is quite severe and cases are increasing in a lot of places and vaccination is critical, so we want to make sure that we make some recommendations quickly,” added Schuchat.

In a statement published by the Save America PAC, former President Donald Trump criticized the decision to suspend the J&J vaccine as a “terrible disservice to the world” that would permanently damage the drug’s reputation and exacerbate vaccine hesitancy. Trump went on to note the FDA’s suspicious decision to announce approval of the Pfizer vaccine just two days after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election.

“The FDA, especially with long-time bureaucrats within, has to be controlled,” argues Trump. “They should not be able to do such damage for possibly political reasons, or maybe because their friends at Pfizer have suggested it.”

Johnson & Johnson acknowledged the “extremely rare” side effect. The company agreed to “proactively delay the rollout” of its vaccine in Europe as it works with medical experts and health authorities.

All federal agencies in the United States have immediately paused use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. States have been encouraged to follow suit.

In the meantime, anyone who develops the following symptoms within three weeks of receiving the J&J vaccine should contact a doctor: severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath

Author’s Note: This decision makes no sense. Since when has any doctor been so afraid of a rare side effect that he stops prescribing a lucrative and effective drug? Since when has the safety of six individuals taken priority over the health of an entire nation?

  1. Tell the family and relatives of the woman that died from the J&J vaccine complication that her ‘only 1 person died’ life does not matter.

  2. The six people specifically women between the ages of 18 and 48, first question are they on any type of hormone therapy, especially Birth Control pills. What underlining health issues do they have and medications prescribed. What was their lifestyle between the time of the J&J and the time of blood issue. Where are these people located in the United States? Before starting the fear mongering let’s have answers. And NO no ones HIPA laws will be broken.

  3. Stupid? You know what’s Stupid – forcibly propagandizing what amounts to dangerous EXPERIMENTAL drugs which are NOT approved by the FDA yet. EVERY vaccine should be on pause. Especially considering adverse death events which are now in the HUNDREDS. Considering that only 1% of adverse events are reported we are looking at a holocaust greater than the friggin disease itself! THAT’s what’s stupid.

  4. I feel this issue need investigated carefully. I know the need for the vaccine and the convenience of only one shot, I would hesitate in getting J & J vaccine. Life is to precious, all life matters.

  5. It should not be stopped ! ! For crying out loud thefe are nearly 8,000,000 shots given and there are 7 or 8 individuals who have severe reactions ? ? Would someone tell us how many individuals are hurt or killed by moat any drug or medicine today ? ? ? I would almost be willing to bet there are more bad reactions to apirin. . .BUT SINCE THAT WOULDNT MAKE GOOD NEWS COPY PEOPLE WILL BE DENIED A CHANCE TO GET PROTECTED FROM THE CHINESE FLU AS THEY MIGHT GET COVERED FOR ANY OTHER DRUG ! ! !

  6. No it should not. It was the only one I might consider.

    But then: Fauci doesn’t have stock in Johnson and Johnson.

  7. They should enquirer if the women were on birth control Stastically those on birth control are more susceptible to blood clots
