Another Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine side effect possible

FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended pausing the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine last week to investigate a potential connection to a rare blood clotting disorder.

More than 7,000,000 people have received the J&J shot and rare blood clots were only reported in six women.

The European Medicines agency said yesterday that a warning about unusual blood clots and low blood platelets should be added to the vaccine.

Local medical professionals are emphasizing that low platelet counts are just another side effect and are not what caused the six women to develop the clotting disorder.

“In this particular case, these were normal people,” Dr. Perez-Trepichio, Chief Medical Officer at Millennium Physician Group, said. “This is a very rare and very severe, but uncommon scenario, so we should not stop vaccinating.”

If you got the J&J vaccine between six and 13 days ago, call your doctor if you experience headaches, abdominal pain or leg pain.

Dr. Perez-Trepichio said that he thinks the J&J shot will be back on the market in the U.S. within the next few days, but with some restrictions.
