Pause of Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine likely to be lifted by Friday, Fauci says

Source: Washington Post

The nationwide pause in the use of Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine is likely to be lifted Friday, according to Anthony S. Fauci, the nation’s top infectious-disease expert.

In interviews on political talk shows Sunday morning, Fauci said that he expected federal health officials would decide the vaccine’s future in the United States by the end of this week and that he did not anticipate its use would be canceled outright.

“By Friday, we should have an answer as to where we’re going with it,” Fauci said on ABC News’s “This Week.” “I would think that we’re not going to go beyond Friday in the extension of this pause.”

The Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had on April 13 called for a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after six reported cases of rare blood clots in U.S. recipients of the vaccine.

1. Since all the victims have been women of reproductive age

they might recommend that subset to stick with the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, but the J&J vaccine should be fine for men and post menopausal women.

2. Good. The risk of blood clots is essentially trivial,

and as has already been pointed out, it can be mitigated by only giving that one to men and women past the age of menopause.

3. Paranoid conservatives are so divided on this

Liberals would probably still get vaccinated. Doctors would have gotten the latest info by now on what to look for and how to treat any blood clots correctly if it happens.
