Listening to FDA/CDC call. This clot has been found in women ages 18-49. One patient died, one in critical condition. FDA will revise fact sheet to include adverse reaction info. Says events are extremely rare.
Doctors are advised that people who present low platelet count should inquire whether the patient has been vaccinated with JJ shot.
Meeting tomorrow to review data. Keep in mind this vaccine has only been widely available for less than 2 months.

Admits “many people” experience fever, headaches, pain, etc after all vaccines.

Advises anyone who has severe symptoms to JJ go to doctor.
Reporters ask how long for pause, FDA says a matter of days. (Why a rush?)

“Subsets” of population might be advised against taking JJ shot.

Reporter asks what’s causing clots. FDA doctor “speculates” it’s an immune response but can’t say for sure. But only has a “hypothesis.”
Bloomberg reporter worried this will stoke “vaccine hesitancy” and what the “messaging” will be to counter vaccine skeptics. FDA says the threat of pandemic is far worse than risk of vaccine.
Reporter asks about link to birth control pills since all victims are child bearing ago. FDA doc says no link confirmed or how many more cases will happen over the next few weeks.

Asked about risk factors—docs say they need “more time” to review. They don’t know why.
Docs suggest JJ might halt production of 2-dose vaccine.

Also admits “flu like symptoms” for first few days from JJ shot but it’s not serious. But people with very severe headache or blood clots (?), pain in legs or abdomen should go to hospital.

When you see crocodile tears from Senate Republicans SHOCKED at Biden's radical agenda, remember how many voted to empower this fast-moving disaster.

GOP Senators who confirmed the most Biden cabinet picks: Collins (all 21 so far); Murkowski, Portman, Romney (19); Graham (17)...
Grassley, McConnell, Rounds, Capito (16); Blunt, Fischer, Burr, Cornyn, Johnson (15); Sullivan, Rounds, Tillis (14).

Hawley voted against 19, Cruz, R. Scott against 18.

They don't even know how to use the little leverage they have. GOP owns this wreck of an administration, too.
But hey some good news! They did torpedo Neera Tanden because she tweeted mean things about them. At least Senate GOP makes they priorities obvious for all to see.

How DOJ investigation was a manhunt to take political prisoners…
No it wasn’t an armed insurrection…

We’ll now see how the lie about Officer Sicknick’s death still is peddled by media: “The attack comes less than three months after the Jan. 6 insurrection that left five people dead, including Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick.”…
“Evans’ death rocked a force already reeling since the Jan. 6 mob attack on the Capitol that left another officer, Brian Sicknick, dead.”…
The source of the lie still lying “Nearly 140 officers suffered injuries during a deadly assault on the building Jan. 6 by a pro-Trump mob. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died of injuries he sustained during the siege.”…

So I see #RemoveRonJohnson is trending. Wait until these dunces realize there’s no evidence of an “insurrection” and DOJ has yet to charge anyone with sedition. The Left is populated not just with vile people but dumb ones, too…
And just for the outrage mob who finds my work bc of the hashtag, here’s a few more…

This is the set up for Biden’s presser:
Already 10 minutes late
Here we go. “Progress report” on first 68 days. Vaccine goal achieved—now wants 200 million shots by first 100 days. Claims almost a majority of schools K-8 schools open full time. (Pretty sure his goal was K-12, will check)
