CDC & FDA HAULTING J & J COVID VACCINATIONS FOR INVESTIGATION

Today (04/13/2021) the CDC & the FDA agreed to stop the administration of the J & J 1-shot Covid Vaccination until they can investigate the very few reports (in comparison to the number of doses already given) of blood clots happening.

If you have an appointment already scheduled for the J & J 1-shot Covid vaccine, might want to check with the institution to see where your appointment stands. 

The Moderna and the Pfizer covid vaccines are NOT affected.

 

AP 04/13/2021 - US recommends ‘pause’ for J&J vaccine over clot reports

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday they were investigating unusual clots that occurred 6 to 13 days after vaccination. The clots occurred in veins that drain blood from the brain and occurred together with low platelets. All six cases were in women between the ages of 18 and 48; there was one death and all remained under investigation.

And THIS is precisely WHY about 30% of medical professions are either on the fence or denying the vaccines.  They are for emergency use only and the side effects have yet to be uncovered.  Look at AZ in EU and JNJ here. Granted, we have few alternatives.  It is accepting the lesser of two evils, one we KNOW and the other unknown.  

I also find it extremely hypocritical of MI's governor who, without ever disclosing her science source rigidly locked down MI's economy and NOW with the CDC asking her to lock it down due to the nation's high infection rate refuses.  Makes no sense.  Whatever happened to having trust in our leadership to do the RIGHT THING for us??

Yes, with EUA by the FDA, that maybe the case - that is why each of us has to weigh our options.  But isn't that what we have to do with even those drugs and treatments which have been approved in the traditional sense -

Because all these vaccines are currently only authorized with EUA, even the military cannot be forced to take them.  I read somewhere that 40% of Marines are refusing the vaccine.

I'm guessing this might come up in the courts too with businesses / schools / airlines, etc. wanting all participants to be vaccinated.

 

So the current plan is to vaccinate everybody that wants it - but we all need to make the decision before that period is over - cause once that period is over, the rest of the world is gonna be slupping up all the rest of the vaccines - they are now begging and waiting.
