Europe’s drug regulator currently reviewing four cases of rare blood clots in company’s Janssen jab, which like AstraZeneca, is an adenovirus vaccine.

...

Australia will not purchase Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine, citing concerns that it is of the same type as the AstraZeneca vaccine which is no longer recommended for people under 50.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. is recommending a “pause” in administration of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine to investigate reports of potentially dangerous blood clots.

In a joint statement Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration said they were investigating unusual clots in six women 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.

5 people with blood clots out of 6 million doses. Priority has been to vaccinate the oldest or those with underlying health issues. Out of 6 million old or weak, that didn't get vaccinated, how many had blood clots?

Dr. John just released a video and he thinks, based on scientific evidence, that the problem with clotting after receiving the J&J or AstraZeneca vaccines has to do with the needle going into a vein instead of into muscle. What the person giving the vaccination should do is after inserting the needle, pull it back (aspiration) and make sure there is no blood, then inject the vaccine.

From what Dr. John has found, the problem appears to be caused by the vaccine being injected into the vascular system. Birth control may also play a role.

He also said, based on his experience, it is rare to hit a vein so that could at least partially account for the rarity of getting clots after being vaccinated.

These are a rare type of blood clot and seemed to be related to the adenovirus used in AstraZeneca and J&J vaccines.
