White House medical adviser Anthony Fauci said that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine against Corvida 19 has been suspended in the United States and should be reused, perhaps with restrictions, and the decision should be announced on Friday.
In an interview with ABC, Fauci said: “I don’t think the break will be longer than Friday. We are likely to make a decision.” He talked about a group of experts who should meet as soon as possible to consider the possible link between the vaccine and the formation of blood clots. .
He added: “I think vaccination may continue, and maybe there will be restrictions. I’m not sure what the vaccination will be like, it will be related to age or gender, or just accompanied by warnings.”
Washington on Tuesday suspended the vaccine to investigate six women in the United States who developed severe blood clots and low platelet counts after being vaccinated.
The experts held their first meeting on Wednesday, when they agreed that they would need more time to decide on the use of the vaccine.
Fauci emphasized that blood clots rarely occur, and explained that vaccination has been temporarily suspended so that experts can check the situation and make sure they have all the necessary information.
