Covid-19 Vaccination

The CDC and the FDA released a blood clotting condition regarding the J&J vaccine case

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a joint statement on reports that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine can trigger cerebral venous sinus thrombosis or a rare blood clotting condition that can turn off. According to their statement, there were a total of six cases, occurring among women aged between 18 and 48 years, with symptoms appearing 6 to 13 days after vaccination.

“For people who got the vaccine more than a month ago, their risk is very low right now. However, for people who have just had the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in the last few weeks, they need to be vigilant,” the CDC said at their press conference.

What symptoms to worry about? CDC Deputy Managing Director Dr Anne Schuchat explained that blood clots usually occur at least about one week after vaccination and no more than three weeks after vaccination. After vaccination, if you experience flu symptoms it is still normal.

What must be addressed immediately is when you experience flu symptoms accompanied by severe headaches. The hospital must also give priority to people who experience these symptoms.

“If after being vaccinated you experience symptoms of blood clots, seek medical care immediately. Especially if your platelet count is low at that time, go to the emergency room immediately,” explained Anne.
