The recommendation was made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that people who develop new symptoms after receiving the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine seek immediate medical attention.
All of these include severe headaches, back pain, new neurological symptoms, severe abdominal pain, inability to breathe, leg swelling, small red spots on the skin, and new or easy bruises.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommended that treatment be interrupted last week because of a few reports of rare but severe blood clots in vaccinated people.
No such problems have been reported after the administration of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.
Although the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is still licensed, the pause gives scientists time to review the information and determine whether the vaccine is related to blood clots, and if so, they should follow human recommendations.
The agency also recommends reporting any adverse reactions through the vaccine adverse event reporting system.
The CDC says that for people who have received the vaccine in the past three weeks, the risk of initially forming a blood clot may be low, and it may decrease over time.
