Johnson & Johnson to continue rolling out across the US – but is it safe?

Published

on

The United States has recommenced the rollout of the Johnson and Johnson coronavirus vaccine, after the jab was halted almost two weeks ago pending an investigation into possible blood clot cases.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration released a joint statement, revealing that they would still warn of the risk of a potentially fatal side effect involving severe blood clots and low platelets in a fact sheet given to recipients.

Officials from America’s Food and Drug Administration said the decision to recommence the rollout of the Johnson and Johnson jab was effective immediately, making it possible for the vaccine to be accessible again as early as Saturday.

“We are no longer recommending a pause in the use of this vaccine” – CDC Director Rochelle Walensky

Medical watchdogs have determined there is a likely link between the J&J vaccine and blood clotting, ‘based on an in-depth analysis’ but urged the risk remains very low.

America’s latest decision on Johnson and Johnson vaccine follows a similar one made by the European Medicines Agency earlier this week.

The EMA on Tuesday said the benefits of the J&J COVID-19 vaccine outweighed any risks.

The European medical regulator recommended adding a warning about unusual blood clots with low blood platelet counts to the vaccine’s product label, which enabled J&J to resume its rollout across Europe.

Democrats scramble to rally behind Harris as Trump allies launch next phase of campaign

Biden Withdraws: President Joe Biden Ends Reelection Bid, Endorses Kamala Harris.

 

After weeks of battling to salvage his political career – claiming he wouldn’t be stepping down after a disastrous debate performance – the president’s sudden change of course was not announced through an Oval Office address or a campaign speech. Instead, it was revealed in a letter posted to social media while he was recovering from Covid-19 at his beach house in Delaware.

“And while it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and the country for me to stand down and to focus solely on fulfilling my duties as President for the remainder of my term,” Biden wrote in a letter posted to X.

Harris expressed her gratitude for Biden’s endorsement, stating she is “honoured” and committed to “earning and winning” the nomination. Should she secure the nomination, Harris would make history as the first Black woman and first Asian American to lead the ticket of a major political party. To facilitate her candidacy, the Biden-Harris campaign has updated its filings with the Federal Election Commission, renaming its principal committee to reflect Harris’s new status as a presidential candidate.

Despite Biden’s support, the path forward remains uncertain. It is unclear whether Harris will automatically become the nominee or what alternative processes the Democratic Party might consider. Additionally, sources suggest that Senator Joe Manchin, an independent from West Virginia, is contemplating re-registering as a Democrat to enter the presidential race.

In response to Biden’s withdrawal, former President Donald Trump criticised Biden as “the worst president by far in the history of our country” during a call with CNN. Trump has also launched a fundraising appeal to rally his supporters.

Donald Trump has said he thinks Kamala Harris will be easier to beat than Joe Biden.

With Biden out, Trump’s campaign will now adjust its strategy, focusing on attacking Harris and any other possible Democratic candidates. They aim to convince voters that Harris would be just as ineffective as Biden.

Biden faced growing doubts about his ability to win re-election, especially after a weak debate performance against Trump. Some Democrats also lost confidence in his leadership, leading him to step down.

Donald Trump said he thinks Kamala Harris will be easier to defeat than Biden. Trump and his team quickly began attacking both Biden and Harris online, claiming that Biden was not fit to be president and that Harris would be just as bad.

Allies of former President Donald Trump quickly launched their campaign against Vice President Kamala Harris on Sunday afternoon, preparing a series of anti-Harris ads and planning their strategies for attacking her.

“I call her laughing Kamala,” Trump told the crowd, during his nearly two-hour appearance. “You can tell a lot by a laugh. She’s crazy. She’s nuts.”
