Six people who developed a rare disorder involving blood clots are the latest cases of the after-effects of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine for covid-19.

The rare disorder has already left one woman dead and another in critical condition in Nebraska. Following these rather disturbing developments, U.S federal health agencies on Tuesday, April 13, called for the suspension of the use of the Johnston and Johnson vaccine.

The healthcare agencies’ recommendation is coming a week after European regulators said they had found a possible link between AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine and a rare blood clotting problem, Reuters reports.

According to the report, all six cases involved women between the ages of 18 and 48. The symptoms occurred 6 to 13 days after they took Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine.

NBC News also reports that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in a statement recommended a pause out of caution.

Johnson & Johnson on its part said there has been no clear causal relationship between these cases and the shot made by its Janssen unit.
