U.S. health authorities paused the distribution of Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 mRNA vaccines to investigate reports of blood clots.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the CDC announced the move on Tuesday after reports of the deadly clotting disorders.

Six women between the ages of 18 and 48 died of blood clots in the brain within two weeks of receiving the Johnson & Johnson single jab vaccine.

The FDA tweeted on Tuesday: “We are recommending a pause in the use of this vaccine out of an abundance of caution.”

The six deceased women were diagnosed with a rare blood clotting disorder called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST).

The six women suffered blood clots in the brain, combined with low levels of blood platelets (thrombocytopenia) that caused hemorrhaging (bleeding disorder).

Should You Be Worried?

If you received the Johnson & Johnson single jab vaccine, it’s important to know the signs & symptoms of blood clots or bleeding disorders:

  • Shortness of breath (clots in lungs)
  • Chest pain (clots in lungs)
  • Severe headache (clots or bleeding in brain)
  • Abdominal pain (bleeding disorder)
  • Leg pain (clots in legs)
  • Blood in urine (bleeding disorder)
  • Black, tarry stools (bleeding disorder)
  •  

    People who received the J&J vaccines and experience the above signs and symptoms should notify your doctor or healthcare provider immediately or go to the emergency room.

    The CDC advised against doctors treating the condition with heparin because heparin is a blood thinner and could make the condition worse.

    “If someone ends up with a very severe headache or any type of shortness of breath, pain in their leg, or severe pain in their abdomen, they would want to seek medical attention,” Dr. Peter Marks, director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said during a press briefing on Tuesday.

    For people who got the vaccine more than a month ago, the risk “is very low at this time,” Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC, said Tuesday.

    Sisters With Voices, aka SWV say they plan to use their famous Michael Jackson sample during an upcoming Verzuz lipsync battle with Xscape.

    Tamara “Taj” Johnson (left) and Leanne “Lelee” Lyons (center) joined “TMZ Live” on Thursday and were asked if SWV will play their hit, “Right Here (Human Nature Remix),” when the R&B group battles Xscape on Saturday.

    TMZ suggested there would be “potential backlash” from the “cancel culture” if SWV played the song during the Verzuz.

    Taj and Lelee see no issue with playing the sample. They say they didn’t even pay Michael for the sample of his 1983 hit, “Human Nature,” and they wouldn’t be successful if not for Michael.

    The ladies say it’s not their job to judge Michael by canceling his music.

    SWV fans agree. One Twitter user wrote:

    “The people with this alleged “potential backlash” won’t even be tuned into the Verzuz so this will be a non issue.”

    Another user tweeted: “If they DIDN’T use the MJ sample there would be an even bigger blacklash!!!!”

    And a third wrote: “People still trying to create anti MJ controversy in 2021?”

    Floyd Mayweather Jr and Jake Paul Brawl at press conference

    Floyd Mayweather Jr and YouTube star Jake Paul got into a heated exchange at the press conference for Floyd’s upcoming boxing match with Logan Paul.

    The 44-year-old champion boxer is annoyed since boxing fans say his fight with 26-year-old Logan is fake.

    If you recall, Logan’s brother, Jake, 24, knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson last year.

    In a video posted on Thursday, Floyd suggested a boxing match between himself and Jake.

    Jake tells him, “Don’t be calling [event promoter] Al Haymon. Let’s make it happen.”

    “I’m my own boss,” FLoyd replies angrily.

    Then Jake snatched Floyd’s cap off his head and shouted “Got your cap!” before fleeing with Floyd in hot pursuit.

    Chaos ensued as Floyd’s security chased after them and separated the two combatants.

    Question: Do you think the upcoming fight between Floyd and Logan Paul is fake?

    Be warned: the video contains excessive profanity — mostly by Floyd who never got his cap back.
