With symptoms similar to those of six people in the United States who recently developed blood clots after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine covid-19 A woman in Texas who was vaccinated with the same vaccine is being treated.
The incident occurred just hours before a meeting of US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advisers today to consider whether it is safe to continue administering the single-dose J&J vaccine against coronavirus, while senior health officials in the US expect to be given the green light.
U.S. health officials recommended suspending the J&J vaccine last week after thrombosis occurred in six of the estimated 7 million people in the country who received the vaccine, according to AMPE.
A Texas Health Service spokesman said CDCs have been notified of the incident, although he added that he could not reveal more details to protect the patient’s privacy.
“It’s about an adult woman being treated “after she was given the J&J vaccine with symptoms similar to those of the six cases reported last week in other areas,” the spokesman explained.
The Austin American-Statesman newspaper, which first reported the news, wrote that federal authorities were investigating the incident.
“It’s important to remember that just because something is said does not mean it was caused or linked to the vaccine,” said Imelda Garcia, an infectious disease inspector with the Texas Department of Health.
The European Medicines Agency (Coreper) announced on Tuesday that it had identified a possible link between the J & vaccineJ against covid-19 and rare cases of thrombosis in some of the adults administered in the US, but stressed that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks.
