Barbara Buchanan chose J&J because it was a one -dose shot, and because experts declared the vaccine safe afterwards. they raised a 10-day halt, KGW8 reports. The US stop is prompted in a review by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of reports of rare blood purification.
“I have a low-grade temperature and I really feel tired,” he said. “I think I suffer from seasonal allergies.”
Buchanan also felt severe cramping in his legs, which he attributed to arthritis. Afterwards he started coughing up blood. Doctors at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center ran a CT scan and discovered blood clots in his lungs, stomach, brain and throat.
“There’s an association with a very small number of people who get this vaccine who get this special blood type with low platelets,” as Dr. Ray Moreno, chief medical officer of St.
Moreno said Buchanan had blood with low platelets, a pattern seen in cases that prompted the CDC and U.S. Food and Drug Administration last month. stopping the vaccine. But Moreno said the reaction was “very unusual” and people shouldn’t be afraid to be vaccinated.
“As with any medicine or medical treatment, there is always the possibility that someone will have bad reaction. That’s why it’s important to talk to your doctor, do research and make an informed decision, ”Moreno said in a statement with ABC’s KAT2TV.

German scientists think they can figure out what causes blood clots
The researchers, in an unreviewed study, said COVID vaccines were used adenovirus vectors – cold viruses used to deliver vaccine material – send some of their charge to the stem of the cells, where some instructions for making coronavirus proteins can be misread. This can result in proteins that can trigger blood diseases in some recipients.
Some scientists have proposed competition theories for the clotting condition.
Scientists and US and EU drug regulators looking for the cause of rare but potentially fatal clots accompanied by low blood platelet counts. The situation led some countries to stop or limit the use of AstraZeneca and J&J vaccines.
