A Brooklyn man found out on Monday that he’d tested positive for the coronavirus — more than two weeks after getting the Johnson and Johnson Vaccine, adding to the growing list of strange occurrences after taking a COVID vaccine.
While the results of the COVID vaccinations have been positive, and all of the vaccines seem to be highly effective, many have been reported to still get COVID after vaccination, in addition to several deaths, which occurred post vaccination.
Matthew Sambolin, 39, told The Post that though he opted for the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine because it was “convenient,” he now wishes he’d gotten the Pfizer or Moderna shot instead.
“The risk was there; I was willing to take it. Now I’m wishing I made a different decision,” he said in a phone call from the spare bedroom of his Bath Beach home, where he’s currently quarantining.
Meanwhile the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers For Disease Control (CDC) released a joint statement on Tuesday, calling for a pause in utilizing Johnson & Johnson shots in the United States. The agency cited blood clots as the main reason for the pause. The J&J experimental viral vector shot is essentially the same product as the AstraZeneca experimental viral vector shot. Thus, it is not surprising that the two products are causing the same adverse effects.
TTJV news previously reported that Michigan data showed 246 residents have tested positive for COVID-19 more than two weeks after being fully vaccinated against the virus that causes it. TJV news also recently reported, More than 100 people in Washington state have tested positive for COVID-19 after being fully vaccinated, authorities said March 30. This date includes all vaccines, not just the Johnson & Johnson, however the J&J vaccine seems to be the only one getting attention from the media and health officials.
There have been hundreds upon hundreds of reports coming in of deaths which have occurred shortly after individuals were vaccinated, most of them come in via the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) which was put in place in 1990 to capture unforeseen reactions from vaccines. Most of these reports are not fully verified and reporters and medical experts are very hesitant to blame the vaccines themselves for the deaths.
Many high-profile deaths have occurred after being vaccinated, such as DMX, Marvin Hagler, Hank Aaron, and Larry King. The details of their vaccination have usually been left out of news reports; however, they have all been vaccinated. The politicization of everything has contributed to a climate of fear of being labeled an “anti-vaxxer” for reporting on possible vaccine deaths and dangerous side effects. The fact that Johnson and Johnson’s vaccine is making headlines is an information breakthrough in an era of journalistic fear.
