The US Food and Drug Administration has warned that Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose Covid-19 vaccine can cause Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare disorder where the immune system attacks the nervous system and can result in paralysis.

Guillain-Barre has been detected (read fact-sheet below) in about 100 people who had recently received Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 jabs, and the FDA said on Monday that 95 of those cases required hospitalization.
One vaccine recipient died from the disorder, the agency said, without providing details.
Many of the patients were men aged 50 and older, and symptoms developed in most of the cases within six weeks after they were vaccinated against Covid-19, according to the CDC.
The drugmaker issued a statement saying it strongly supports “raising awareness” of the “signs and symptoms of rare events” to ensure they can be quickly identified and properly treated.

The risk of contracting Guillain-Barre after receiving the vaccination “exceeds the background rate by a small degree,” the company said, meaning it’s slightly higher than the average occurrence of the disorder.
Johnson & Johnson also stood by its vaccine as an “important tool in the global fight against Covid-19,” noting the advantage of a jab that requires only one dose.
But the new FDA warning marks another setback for a vaccine that was temporarily suspended from use in April on concern that it could cause dangerous blood clots.
The US CDC and FDA lifted their recommended pause on use of Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus vaccine with a condition that it will now include a safety label warning that its vaccine comes with blood clot risks.
The FDA’s updated fact sheet (read below) for the Johnson & Johnson jab advises recipients of the vaccine to immediately seek medical attention if they experience any of the following symptoms: weakness or tingling sensations, especially in the legs or arms; difficulty walking; difficulty with bladder control or bowel function; double vision or inability to move eyes; or difficulty with facial movements, such as speaking, chewing and swallowing.
German scientists found the exact 2 step process how the COVID-19 vaccine causes blood clots in recipients. They describe a series of events that has to happen in the body before the vaccines create these large clots.
The scientists found out how the broken parts of Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines branded as Covishield in India mutate to trigger blood clots in recipients.
Scientists say the vaccine is sent into the cell nucleus instead of surrounding fluid, where parts of it break off and create mutated versions of themselves. The mutated versions then enter the body and trigger the blood clots.
Another shocking study has revealed the terrifying dangers of even the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines inducing prion-based disease causing your brain to degenerate progressively.
The mRNA vaccine induced prions may cause neurodegenerative diseases because long-term memories are maintained by prion-like proteins. The study concluded that mRNA based vaccine may also cause ALS, front temporal lobar degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological degenerative diseases in the vaccine recipients.
