J&J is currently suspended (recommended anyway) due to blood clots having developed in a few people. Scary stuff. My cousin (in her 40s) had blood clots in her heart shortly after having recovered from Covid (not the vaccine and was never hospitalized with Covid, nor did she have a bad case of it). She was in a major hospital for 2 weeks and is still being monitored now.
My med school lad tells me the clots were likely from Covid because Covid is considered a clotting disease - many “later” issues come from clots including strokes, etc, so he wouldn’t be surprised if it could produce heart clots too. Having read the article, I can’t help but wonder if it’s the same blood clotting or not.
I’m not at all close to this cousin having only learned about her issues from my aunt - and she’s not as keen with her mind as she used to be (age related), so I probably have no way of finding out. I wish I could know more about how it all relates - just to know.
I feel for all those affected, due to Covid or possibly due to the vaccine. Covid really is one nasty bug IMO.
Here’s what’s said about J&J:
“In the United States alone, 300,000 to 600,000 people a year develop blood clots, according to C.D.C. data. But the particular blood clotting disorder that the vaccine recipients developed, known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, is extremely rare.”
