Blood clots: Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine is a curb in the United States

Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine is linked to a blood clot. For this reason, the United States has limited the scope of emergency use of the coroner’s vaccine. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said on Thursday that only Johnson & Johnson vaccines could be given to adults who are concerned about the MRNA vaccine or do not have access to it due to a physical complication.

Johnson & Johnson, a US-based multinational company, has introduced a single dose of coronavirus. This vaccine provides less protection than Pfizer and Modern vaccines. In December last year, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advised citizens to refrain from taking the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. And this time the US Food and Drug Administration announced that it would limit the use of Johnson & Johnson vaccines for emergency use.

Peter Marks, a FDA scientist, said in a statement: “Today’s move demonstrates the strength of our security surveillance system. Through this, the promise we made to make decisions based on science and information has been confirmed.

As of March 18, 70 people in the United States have been diagnosed with thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS). Problems such as susceptibility to blood clots occur, although not in large numbers. Blood platelets decrease in TTS. Nine people have died of TTS in the United States.

In these cases, symptoms begin to appear within one to two weeks of vaccination. Surviving this problem, however, has a lifelong effect. This problem is more common in women who are in the early stages of menopause.

Concerns about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine were already there. That’s why the number of vaccinations in the United States has been relatively low. So far, 16 million doses of the vaccine have been given in the United States. A total of 586 million doses of corona have been vaccinated in the country.

The use of this vaccine is not strictly prohibited in the United States. Explaining the reason, FDA scientist Peter Marks acknowledged that a complete ban could have an impact on the use of the vaccine around the world. In addition, those who have objections to the mRNA vaccine, their side has been taken into consideration here.

There are a number of health reasons for not getting the mRNA vaccine. Inflammation of the heart of adolescents has been reported in this vaccine.

The MRNA vaccine is not available in certain health conditions, including inflammation of the heart. The vaccine was developed using adenovirus vectors, not the Johnson & Johnson mRNA vaccine.
