Due to concerns about blood clots, an advisory panel to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention unanimously voted to recommend the two-dose Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines over the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
The CDC released new data this week showing more cases of blood clots have occurred since the agency temporarily halted Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine in April, Fox Business reported.
The blood clots are known as “thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome.”
Researchers have found that women between the ages of 30 and 49 are most affected by the blood clotting. The estimated rate of occurrence is about 1 in 100,000 shots.
CDC official Dr. Isaac See said Thursday that health officials have confirmed 54 cases of blood clotting related to the J&J vaccine. Nine have been fatal, and two more deaths are suspected to be related to blood clotting.
The decision to accept the panel’s recommendation lies with CDC Director Rochelle Walensky.
About 16 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine have been administered in the United States, compared to approximately 470 million doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
According to the American Society of Hematology, symptoms of blood clots typically occur about six to 14 days after injection with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. They symptoms include severe headaches, abdominal pain, back pain and nausea.
Unlike the messenger RNA vaccines, the Johnson & Johnson shot is a viral vector vaccine, which uses a harmless adenovirus. The vaccine replaces a small piece of the genetic instructions in the adenovirus with genetic instructions for the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, producing antibodies to fight it. The Pfizer and Moderna mRNA technology “teaches” cells to make a protein that triggers an immune response rather than inserting a live virus.
A study published in the journal Nature Medicine on Tuesday from Oxford University showing the COVID-19 vaccines can cause myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart, in young people at a rate higher than the incidence of COVID-19.
In October, citing concerns of myocarditis, the Food and Drug Administration delayed its decision on administration of the Moderna vaccine to young people.
At the time, Sweden, Finland and Norway halted the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for younger people, and Iceland stopped administering the shot to everyone.
Also, France’s health authority advised against using the Moderna vaccine because of the myocarditis risk.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Last year, America’s doctors, nurses and paramedics were celebrated as frontline heroes battling a fearsome new pandemic. Today, under Joe Biden, tens of thousands of these same heroes are denounced as rebels, conspiracy theorists, extremists and potential terrorists. Along with massive numbers of police, firemen, Border Patrol agents, Navy SEALs, pilots, air-traffic controllers, and countless other truly essential Americans, they’re all considered so dangerous as to merit termination, their professional and personal lives turned upside down due to their decision not to be injected with the experimental COVID vaccines. Biden’s tyrannical mandate threatens to cripple American society – from law enforcement to airlines to commercial supply chains to hospitals. It’s already happening. But the good news is that huge numbers of “yesterday’s heroes” are now fighting back – bravely and boldly. The whole epic showdown is laid out as never before in the sensational October issue of WND’s monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREAT AMERICAN REBELLION: ‘We will not comply!’ COVID-19 power grab ignites bold new era of national defiance.”
