With the pause of the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine – we want to ease your mind a bit with some facts around the pause:
- 6 people out of 6.8 million who received the J&J vaccine developed a blood clot.
- All were women who developed blood clots.
- 1 woman died from it.
- In all the women, the blood clots developed 6 to 13 days after receiving the vaccine.
- Signs of developing a clot are severe headache, pain in your abdomen or legs, shortness of breath.
- If you develop any of the above signs within 3 weeks after receiving a J&J vaccine, see your doctor immediately and inform him or her that you received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
- Your doctor needs to know you received the J&J vaccine because if you do have a blood clot, your doctor will treat it differently than other clots.
- Do NOT hesitate to see your doctor or go to the ER, regardless if your female or male.
