Covid-19: Johnson & Johnson vaccine to resume in the United States despite ongoing reports of blood clotting events




A panel of experts in the United States has recommended that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine continues to be administered, despite ongoing reports of blood clotting events.

Administration of the vaccine was paused after six reports of blood clotting events surfaced, one of them fatal. Since then, two more reports of fatal outcomes linked to blood clotting emerged.

The jab has been cleared for people aged 18 and over, and a label will now be added warning of ‘rare’ blood clotting issues.
