CDC, FDA Recommending Pause Of Johnson & Johnson Vaccine

The CDC and FDA are recommending a pause on the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. That news comes after six reported cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot forming in individuals who have received the vaccine in the United States.

As of Monday, there have been more than 6.8 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine administered in the US, so this issue is considered an extremely rare occurrence. However, the CDC and FDA are taking an “abundance of caution” with the situation.


According to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, there isn’t any reason to be alarmed. As was pointed out in the above tweets, this is out of an abundance of caution. The state of Florida will heed the recommendations made by the federal government.

“I don’t think people should be freaking out,” DeSantis said, via the Orlando Sentinel. “I think what they’re doing is out of an abundance of caution. I don’t think people should be worried who have already had it, who haven’t had any effects. I think it’s likely going to be very effective for you. But given that they’re doing it, we feel that’s the appropriate thing to do.”

  1. What do you mean? They said these vaccines were safe? I was just going to trust the CDC, jab this into my body without another thought, and hope that in a year from now I don’t drop dead from allergies or develop some bizarre illness out of the blue. Shocking! Nothing to see here.

  2. They’re doing “out of an abundance of caution”? More likely they know that there are a TON more people who are having these reactions but they are not being reported, This is damage control, pure and simple.

  3. All of these worthless shots should be paused. Fully HALF of everyone I know who has gotten one has had moderate to severe side effects, and have not reported them as such. Being unable to move the arm that received the injection, missing an entire day of work, dizziness, severe brain fog….these are not normal side effects, and they are common with each injection. Just the reported adverse effects alone should be enough to stop them, let alone what is going unreported.

    • Same…I know more people who have had those type of side effects than those who had little to none. Plus I have had a bad reaction to another medicine which I’m not going to reveal here…but that made me certainly apprehensive to this.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if something about the mRNA actually attacks the immune system rather than helping it.

  4. I always love when the explanation includes this is “an extremely rare occurrence”. So do you think these individuals experiencing the severe blood clot issue are relieved that it is only a rare occurrence? I am wondering if these people are thinking that maybe they should have just taken their chances without a vaccine for a virus that has a 99%+ survival rate?

  5. I’ll take my chances by not getting vaccinated for now. This was about political checkers almost from the beginning. I don’t know it was particularly subtle to anyone with a modicum of a functioning mind. Big Tech, the NBA, the Legacy media are all complicit. There are politicians on both sides of the aisle I believe are selling out the United States to be taken care of by China and establish they are part of the new, Marxists power brokers in our country. I believe BLM, Antifa are pawns of the CCP to tear us apart from the inside, all supported by the players I mentioned previously.

  6. And this is why I wasn’t in a rush to go get a vaccine that was rolled out in less than a year for a condition with over 99% survival rate. The people that got them were guinea pigs at best and poisioned by Bill Gates/oligarchs depopulation plan at worst.

    You think blood clots are bad…other side effects I’ve seen are violent non stop shakes, strokes, and death.
