For those who don't want to read, as of March 19, 2022 there have been NINE (9) deaths from 18 million J&J vaccines.
I am patiently waiting to be number 10.
And yet the scuttle butt around the country coffee shop is everyone knows of someones cousins uncles' friend who died after getting a vaccine..
Fox News has a higher COVID death count than that.
Still glad the system works and precautions are being taken.
9 or 90; won't matter to the Alex Jones and the rest of the propaganda spreaders.
And those people could have died anyways without the vaccine since they can’t really point the vaccine as the cause. It’s much better than people not having had the J&J vaccine, that’s for sure.
Or .5 of a micromort. Same level of risk as driving 115 miles, according to wikipedia. Infection fatality rate COVID-19 at age 25 is 100 micromorts.
If 9 are enough to restrict its use, 9 are enough for me to not risk it.
And that, ladles and jellyspoons, is what adverse reaction event tracking systems are for. They see a little hump in the data for that vaccine, and determine that, because there are other vaccines available, the precautionary principle dictates limiting it to those who can't tolerate the other vaccines for any reason.
It is NOT a record of adverse reactions, but adverse symptoms post-vaccine that may or may not be a result of the vaccine.
Having a brief crisis of identity now
When I got vaccinated in 2021, it was still difficult to get an appointment and so I went with J&J because it became available. The next day,they announced the clotting concern.
I was tired and had a low grade fever the next day, but otherwise wise, no side effects. Seven months later, I chose Moderna as my booster.
The FDAs decision shouldn’t alarm anyone but we know that anti-vaxxers will anti-vax. Availability has changed over the past year; this decision follows the data and considers that availability.
If you haven’t been vaccinated yet but are considering it, don’t let this discourage you.
I was listening to a podcast yesterday and a doctor said that, in his opinion, that was the best scenario. J&J first dose, mRNA booster. It had to do with J&J having better long lasting effects.
Are you me? That's exactly what I did. Next day they announced the clotting issue. Got Moderna for the booster.
