The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a joint statement on the 13th, proposing to suspend the vaccination of Johnson & Johnson new crown vaccine, following the rare thrombosis of six vaccinees and the death of the vaccinees.
According to the Washington Post on the 13th, the CDC and FDA confirmed in a joint statement that there were cases of extreme side effects among people vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine: six women aged 18 to 48 developed “rare thrombosis” in their bodies within 6 to 13 days after the injection of the vaccine. One patient has died and another Nebraska woman is in danger of death. The CDC will hold an expert meeting on the 14th to evaluate the above cases, and the FDA will also investigate. The statement said the authorities were advised to suspend the J & J vaccination until the investigation of the two units reached a conclusion. Although it is only a “suggestion”, the media believe that the US governments at all levels will certainly attach great importance to it. Two hours after the statement, Ohio has called for an emergency stop to the problem vaccine.
The New York Times believes that just as the side effects of the AstraZeneca vaccine affect Europe, the problem of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is likely to bring more trouble to the universal vaccination work in the United States. Compared with Pfizer and Modena vaccine products, Johnson & Johnson vaccine only needs to be injected once, and the logistics and storage requirements are not high, so it is more suitable for the public. At present, the epidemic situation is rebounding in many states of the United States, and many people are biased against the vaccine. I am afraid that the latest situation will lead to an increase in people’s resistance to vaccination.
The US “business insider” news network reported that, in fact, before the thrombus case, a series of negative news had spread out about Johnson & Johnson vaccine: in Colorado, North Carolina and Georgia, many vaccinators developed nausea, dizziness and even fainting within 15 minutes of the injection, and the use of this kind of vaccine had been temporarily suspended before several injection points.
