Reportedly, the U.S. health regulator has issued notice to limit the use of the Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) COVID-19 vaccine for adults due to the high risk of a rare blood clotting syndrome. The Food and Drug Administration informed, that the J&J vaccine can be administered in cases where authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccines are not accessible or if an individual is less keen on using the other two shots (Moderna and Pfizer). The vaccine maker updated the U.S. COVID-19 vaccine fact sheet listing the risk of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) which is a rare but potentially life-threatening condition.
Use of the J&J shot has been weak in high-income countries, hurt by reports of rare, potentially deadly blood clots, production issues, including an accidental mix-up of ingredients by a contract manufacturer, and concerns about efficacy. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had recommended that Americans choose to receive mRNA shots from Pfizer and Moderna over J&J’s vaccine due to the rare cases of blood clotting.
