Sixty U.S. cases of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), which produces rare and potentially life-threatening blood clots with low levels of blood platelets, had been reported by March 18, with nine deaths.

Symptoms begin approximately one to two weeks following administration, and the condition -- which can cause life-long impacts even when not fatal -- occurs more frequently in premenopausal women.

If you had posted this information 6 months ago on Youtube it would have been censored as "misinformation" and you account would have been suspended.

Safe and effective ... until new research comes to light.

There should be billion dollar lawsuits, but alas, Big Pharma lobbied for zero liability for their products. All the liability is on the end user.

You mean posting "information" from the future without way of corroborating it? well that would be something good to do,

These are 60 cases from 18.7 million people vaccinated, do you want to know how many extra cases of thrombosis would be expected from 18.7 million COVID cases? around 30,000. This means this vaccine still prevents much more cases of Thrombosis than it would cause, the problem is that other vaccines prevent more (and are also better protection against COVID).

The videos deleted from Youtube are not those that just put the information, but those that twist it and take it out of context to misrepresent the situation and deceive people into making wrong decisions. Putting other lives at risk just because you want to push a personal belief already disproved by science is not valid

There should be billion dollar lawsuits, but alas, Big Pharma lobbied for zero liability for their products. All the liability is on the end user.

Both things are false, the government absorbs ONE kind of liability out of the many kinds there are, so people no longer have to prove the vaccine is the only possible cause for a problem, only need to prove it could be related to get compensation, this liability is never on the end user. That would be the case of the people that lose their lawsuits and have to pay expensive lawyers when they can't prove something that is at best extremely difficult and many times already accepted when they take the shot (like the clotting risk that is included in the information given for this vaccine).

Sixty U.S. cases of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), which produces rare and potentially life-threatening blood clots with low levels of blood platelets, had been reported by March 18, with nine deaths.

60 cases recorded, which is just a fraction of actual cases. Real number is likely at least 10X higher.

Any source for this calculation? or is it something based on your supposed authority? what makes you say this is "likely"? that you want to believe it so?.

Any source for this calculation? 

Many studies have concluded that only a small fraction of adverse events are ever reported to vaers. This has been mentioned many times on JT, I'm sure you've seen it.

Probably this is just the beginning.

I am wondering what more will come to light within the next months about the vaccines.

And I am not talking about J&J only.

Oh...stop...didn't we get told how safe the vaccine is from the so highly admired self nominated experts and internet trolls?

The photo above is not the actual vaccine vile.

The actual vile requires the words "For Emergency Use Only" to be clearly printed on it.

It has to be printed on the vile because once the emergency, which President Trump enacted, ends, it becomes illegal to administer these vaccines to humans.

-3 ( +7 / -10 )

Still safe and effective. 60 cases out if 18.7 million is neglible. How many of those 18.7 million have expired in that time from another ailment. How many of those 18.7 million are alive BECAUSE they had the vaccine.

In any case, an unpopular vaccine, as most have flocked to the far more efficient Pfizer and Moderna miracle shots.

60 cases recorded, which is just a fraction of actual cases. Real number is likely at least 10X higher.

This is an assertion. Where is the evidence? Are you a doctor or do you posess any advanced knowledge or expertise in virology?

Just asserting things doesn't make them true.

Yeah, an older Harvard investigation showed that only 1% of vaccine adverse effects are reported to VAERS. A number of more recent studies focusing on Covid19 vaccines showed that the real number of adverse effects is at least 10X the VAERS numbers.

In any case, an unpopular vaccine, as most have flocked to the far more efficient Pfizer and Moderna miracle shots.

Actually, those are probably worse. According to the recent Danish study I've been bringing up lately, mRNA vaccines had no effect on overall mortality, while the adenovirus based vaccines showed some benefit... But I would avoid all of them...

I would still rather have gotten J&J had it been available to me.

@Raw Beer: Problem is, no one cares what you would do. You stick to your Ivermectin. Live in the past, with your 'alternative' buddies.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

... And yes, the other 99% of adverse effects were probably a sore arm. Irrelevant.

@Bronco. As you are such an expert on vaccines, I would assume you would know that they are stored in 'vials'. Vile would be used to describe your attitude towards public health.

Freudian slip.

As opposed to the people who are paid (by my tax money) to take care of public health yet they clearly failed in their due diligence when they told 18.7 million Americans that the vaccine was "safe and effective"

This product, like countless other pharmacological concoctions, should never have been administered in the first place.

If you are men, you can still choose to take it because 70~80% of blood clotting happened on women.

"Today's action demonstrates the robustness of our safety surveillance systems and our commitment to ensuring that science and data guide our decisions," said FDA scientist Peter Marks in a statement.

Now they are concerned about safety.

What's next ?

Perhaps time to review those so-called "Conspiracy Theories" that had been floating around earlier before being suppressed ?

1 ( +3 / -2 )

Headache and rash may be unreported importantly, but thrombosis? not realistically possible, the vaccines do reduce the mortality of the populations for which is most recommended, but it is illogical to expect it to make a difference in death by all causes in young people that predominantly die from much more frequen violence or accidents. The vaccine in the article is safe and effective, much safer than not vaccinating according to the experts, it is just that there are even safer and more effective options. Conspiracy theories that contradict well based facts are not worth of any attention.
