J&J Vaccine Yanked: What to Know About Blood-Clotting Concerns

All 50 US states on Tuesday halted the administering of the Johnson & Johnson covid vaccine upon recommendation from the FDA and CDC over several rare cases of a serious blood clotting issue that may be connected to the vaccine.

Lakewood’s CHEMED announced that they canceled all vaccine appointments for the J&J vaccine after New Jersey ordered a halt to the vaccines, but they are still administering Pfizer and Moderna vaccines by the hundreds each day. The Ocean County Health Department also canceled scheduled appointments to get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and offered those whose appointments were canceled vaccines from the other two major companies.

Since then, several readers who received the J&J vaccine have reached out to TLS for information regarding the blood-clotting issue and whether they should be concerned. Below is the most up-to-date information.

So far, health officials have identified 6 people – all women – who experienced a rare type of blood clot called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, or CVST, on average nine days after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The symptoms of the blood clots can include leg pain, abdominal pain, shortness of breath, and severe headaches. The women, all between the ages of 18 and 48, had no known underlying health conditions. One of the women died and another was hospitalized in critical condition over the condition. Despite all those affected being female, it is not yet known whether females are more susceptible to this side effect or whether the side effect is even related to the vaccine at all. As of today, only 6 people out of 6.8 million who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine have been reported as having experienced blood clotting afterward.

Despite the low incidence of blood clotting issues, doctors are warning people to be on the lookout for symptoms of it, as rapid treatment is crucial. Treatment of CVST is different than other blood-clotting disorders, many of which are treated with the drug Heparin, but which can be dangerous when attempting to treat CVST.

A top CDC official said that it is too early to tell whether certain subsets of the population are more prone to getting these blood clots and that the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices needs time to review the available, and sparse, data.

Officials say that, out of 180 million-plus Pfizer and Moderna vaccines that have been administered, they have not yet seen any incidents of blood clotting.

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are completely different than the Johnson & Johnson vaccines. New mRNA technology is used in the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, whereas the Johnson & Johnson is a more classic viral vector vaccine, using the same technology used in other, common vaccines.

  1. According to VAERS covid reports
    Moderna has 2 cerbral venous sinus thrombosis events reported and pfizer also has 2
    total thrombosis claims for moderna covid vaccine is 95 claims
    total thrombosis claims for pfizer covid vaccines is 130 claims
    total thrombosis claims for Johnson and Johnson is 12
    there are different kinds of blood clotting, most of the claims were for deep vein thrombosis and thrombosis.
    would be nice to find out why they are singling out J&J
    and why are you reporting that there have been no blood clotting issues with the other vaccines?

  2. Pfizer and Moderna have not seen any “blood clottting” incidents, but 277 people have reported cardiac arrests to VAERS, 306 have reported strokes, and 61 have reported cerebral hemorrhages – from these two vaccines. Something strange is going on if the FDA Is only focusing on the J and J, and not investigating these other two covid vaccines as well.

  3. Well use some common sense. The J&J is not an MRNA vaccine while the other 2 vaccines are. If you don’t smell the filth then I assume you never will.

  4. Even though there have been many adverse events to ALL the vaccines (medalerts.org), the biggest concern are the long term effects. There is no data on this yet, and many respected and educated mainstream scientists and doctors have warned of the possibility of an immune inhancement response (ADE) down the line CV which could kill many, many people. Hashem should protect us. Any doctor who could promise you that these vaccines are for sure safe is just flat out lying.

  5. Read up on this vaccine. It is not like the other vaccines until now. It does not introduce the virus or a part of it into your body. It also uses a form of gene therapy. Check it out on the New York Times article online on “How the Johnson and Johnson Works”

    • Fortunately Hashem has prepared the refuah before the makkah and there are many, many protocols that are safe and effective to prevent and treat covid EVEN for pregnant woman. Preferably the treatments should be started early and if the oxygen level decreases even a little, you may need additional treatments like antibiotics, anticoagulants, that also work right away to prevent hospitalization (Lakewood hospitals are still not treating covid properly) .

      Most important: Keep your vitamin D levels high.

      Look at the FLCCC website and DrVladimirZelenkomd website. YOu can also call the covid hotlines that are advertised like somech and save a life that have a lot of experience guiding people.
