The Facts

▪ The CDC and FDA released an advisory on Tuesday to halt the use of the Johnson & Johnson one-shot COVID-19 vaccine.

▪ The federal bodies decided to investigate the vaccine after receiving six reports of a rare and fatal blood clotting disease, ‘cerebral venous sinus thrombosis’ (CVST), in women between the ages of 18 to 48.

▪ Dr. Anthony Fauci, Biden’s chief medical adviser, said almost 7 million people took the J&J shot, and officials reported CVST in less than one in a million cases.

▪ White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Jeff Zients assured that the US has a sufficient supply of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, and the J&J vaccine halt will not affect the US vaccination drive.
