Biden the anti-vaxxer

Chairman Xiden's administration panicked today and shut down injections of Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose coronavirus vaccine because 6 people out of the 6.8 million people vaccinated got blood clots.

The odds of this blood clot literally is one-in-a-million. And something else may have caused the clots. But here come the Democrats instantly locking down the vaccines.

The New York Times said, "All six were women between the ages of 18 and 48 and all developed the illness within one to three weeks of vaccination. One woman died and a second woman in Nebraska has been hospitalized in critical condition."

Rather than locking down the vaccinations of everyone, prudence would continue the shots with a warning to women ages 18 to 48.

But I am being logical, aren't I? That is to my disadvantage.

Dr. Peter Marks, director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, and Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC, said in a joint statement, "We are recommending a pause in the use of this vaccine out of an abundance of caution."

No. They are wrong.

Shutting down the vaccinations is not an abundance of caution. Theirs is an irrational overreaction. Theirs is a death sentence to thousands of people who will go unvaccinated because they cannot get the J&J shots now, and because they will hesitate to get one of the two competing vaccines.

The Times reported, "While the move was framed as a recommendation to health practitioners, the impact was immediate. Within two hours of the announcement, Gov. Mike DeWine of Ohio, a Republican, advised all health providers in his state to temporarily stop giving Johnson & Johnson shots. New York, Connecticut, Nebraska and several other states quickly followed suit.

"CVS and Walgreens, pharmacy giants that participate in a federal vaccination program, also stopped administering the shots, as did the U.S. military. Other federally run vaccination sites are expected to do the same."

President Donald John Trump is having none of this.

Via the New York Post, our president emeritus said, "The Biden Administration did a terrible disservice to people throughout the world by allowing the FDA and CDC to call a ‘pause’ in the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

"The results of this vaccine have been extraordinary but now its reputation will be permanently challenged. The people who have already taken the vaccine will be up in arms, and perhaps all of this was done for politics or perhaps it’s the FDA’s love for Pfizer.

"The FDA, especially with long time bureaucrats within, has to be controlled. They should not be able to do such damage for possibly political reasons, or maybe because their friends at Pfizer have suggested it. They’ll do things like this to make themselves look important."

One thing I have noticed during his nearly 6 years in politics is that Donald Trump is never wrong. His takes are hot.

The Pfizer-FDA thing is new to me, but I do see that vaccinations are undermining the case for lockdowns and people like Governor Mike DeWine don't like that. 

And I doubt Chairman Xi wants to see our lockdowns end as well.

  1. Women in that age group who take birth control pills are at a greater risk for blood clots, but they haven't been taken off the market.

    1. Since I am 76 with many minor health problems and medications, I discussed with my doctor today about any reaction for me with the vaccines. He did say young women on birth control pill are at risk taking the vaccine.

    2. My first thought, too. And women who take birth control pills and smoke are at an even greater risk.

      The J&J vaccine is, in my family of nurses' collected opinion, the one vaccine they might get -- if forced -- because it is a dead virus.

      The ultimate difference is the way the instructions are delivered. The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines use mRNA technology, and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine uses the more traditional virus-based technology.

      mRNA is essentially a little piece of code that the vaccine delivers to your cells. The code serves as an instruction manual for your immune system, teaching it to recognize the virus that causes COVID-19 and attack it, should it encounter the real thing.

      Instead of using mRNA, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine uses a disabled adenovirus to deliver the instructions. This adenovirus is in no way related to the coronavirus. It is a completely different virus. Although it can deliver the instructions on how to defeat the coronavirus, it can’t replicate in your body and will not give you a viral infection.

    Shutting down the vaccines is about shutting down the economy. It's CONTROL.

  4. With the flood of unvaccinated illegals swarming across the border bringing covid WITH them, this is all a farce anyway. Uncle Joe is planning on letting the virus spread so he can announce another nationwide lockdown. Never let a crisis go to waste, and they won't this time since Obama is running the show anyway.

    1. The governors ordered the lockdowns, but the Trump Admin didn't object because it was just to flatten the curve. But it got out of hand since it gave so much power to governors. In MD only exempt people could drive and one could be jailed and/or fined if caught "breaking" the law. Random stops were done to catch violators. It is rumored in the medical profession that some states will reinstate the lockdowns.

      Delete
    2. Trump kinda let the horse out of the barn, making it easier for them, but the blue states would have done it any way eventually.

      Two weeks will be two years in no time. They're already coming up with their justifications to do it.

  5. chance of blood clots with jnj is 0.00000085 or 0.000085%. Definitely over reaction and an indication they don't have a clue. Couldn't be any worse if fauci called it.

    1. The problem is what are the causes of the problems. Science knows the mechanisms but not why some and not the many others. I like to know the risk factors to judge for myself if I want one or the other type vaccine or neither. The birth control pill use is one factor believed in the clots, but I don't have to worry about that risk; however in Europe the first case was a male.

    2. It has been speculated (not confirmed) that the people having an adverse reaction may have already been infected with the Chinese virus. In the government’s frantic push to get EVERYONE vaccinated, they are not testing for active infection before loading people up with more virus. Sounds reasonable, but as I said, not yet proven.

  6. JFK - "We are not going to put a man on the moon and return him to earth - out of an abundance of caution".

    Thomas Jefferson - "We are not going to declare our independence out of an abundance of caution".

    Jonas Salk - "I am stopping work on a polio vaccine out of an abundance of caution".

    Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama - "I am not moving our embassy to Jerusalem out of an abundance of caution".

    An abundance of caution pretty much excludes an abundance of anything else worthwhile.

  15. My physician has been touting the J&J vaccine. My appointment with him is next week. I'm relieved there won't be as much pressure to take the vaccine given this issue, several other severe side affects, and the major cluster they had at the Baltimore manufacturing plant. It will be much easier to say, no thanks.

  17. Those were 6 that the CDC admits to. That means there are many more out there. This is essentially the same vaccine as Astra Zeneca than Scandinavian countries pulled off the shelf because of blood clots.
    This is what happens when you don't do animal trials. Human are the animals and terrible things happen.
