    The Maryland manufacturer that ruined 75 million doses of Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine has received requests to hand over records from a host of federal and state law enforcement agencies, regulatory documents filed Friday show. The company, Emergent BioSolutions, disclosed that it had received “preliminary inquiries and subpoenas to produce documents” from the Justice Department, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the attorneys general of Maryland and New York and committees in both houses of Congress. The disclosure suggests broadening scrutiny of the politically connected company, which received a $628 million federal contract to be...

    ‘Vast majority’ of Covid-19 cluster in Cape Cod were vaccinatedIn Cape Cod, a geographic cape extending into the Atlantic Ocean in Massachusetts, the vaccinated are falling ill with Covid-19. The American town with one of the highest vaccination rates in the state, now has the highest rate of new cases. An official told ABC News on Monday that the “vast majority” of the 132 Covid-19 cases were among vaccinated individuals. At least 33 people in a nursing home in Yarmouth on Cape Cod have tested positive for SARS-Cov-2. Most of the residents that tested positive were vaccinated, reported the Boston...

    A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Johnson & Johnson with the claim that the company’s OGX hair care products cause significant hair loss. The products are sold at major national retailers, including Target, Ulta, CVS, Walmart, and Walgreens. Johnson & Johnson shampoos, conditioners, and some hair oils are among the products named in the lawsuit. The plaintiff, Larissa Whipple, an Illinois woman, cites the ingredient DMDM hydantoin as the main concern. DMDM hydantoin is a preservative and antimicrobial agent sometimes found in hair care products. It’s considered a “formaldehyde donor,” meaning it releases a small amount of formaldehyde over...

    New York Attorney General’s office said the agreement bans J&J from promoting opioids through any means and prohibits lobbying about such products at the federal, state or local levels. However, Johnson & Johnson said it had already exited the business. As part of the settlement, the company will resolve opioids-related claims and allocate payments over nine years. The settlement follows years of lawsuits by states, cities and counties against major pharmaceutical companies over the opioid crisis, which has killed nearly 500,000 people in the U.S. since 1999.

    US/AMERICAS: The US economy added 600,000 positions in March. However, 8.1 million jobs remain vacant, according to a report released today by the US Chamber of Commerce. “More than 90 percent of state and local chambers of commerce say worker shortages are holding back their economies, and more than 90 percent of industry association economists say employers in their sectors are struggling to find qualified workers for open jobs,” the Chamber stated on Tuesday. Chamber President and CEO Suzanne Clark said there is an official labor shortage that is worsening each day. A poll found that nearly 70% of businesses...

    The Johnson & Johnson single-dose COVID-19 vaccine that was paused last week by the federal government has been given the green light again, despite 15 blood clots and one death that caused the pause in the first place. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the drug's reentry into the vaccine market for emergency use authorization (EUA). "Following a thorough safety review, including two meetings of the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have determined that the...

    NY Times ^ | Apr 2021
    To the Editor: I read with interest “Vaccines May Affect Women Differently” (news article, April 18). It fails to address what I consider some other important questions concerning weight, dosage and side effects. For example, does one size fit all? With regard to Covid vaccines, everyone gets the same dose, whether the patient is a 5-foot-2 woman weighing 105 pounds or a 6-foot-4 man weighing 210 pounds. And some individuals are more sensitive to medications than others, and are more likely to suffer side effects (including tinnitus, which I experienced). I believe in vaccines, and we all hope they are...

    Editors Note: This column was co-written by Timothy AllenPausing the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine will result in more deaths. The recommendation to halt the vaccine’s use occurred because six people have suffered blood clots out of the 6.8 million doses, and one person has died. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) advisory panel is under attack for “prematurely” authorizing the vaccine’s use. ABC News’ headline warns that “many women on edge” because of these fears.Unfortunately, emotions, not logic, are ruling the day. Even if the vaccine is causing blood clots, the rate of death is just a tiny fraction...

    Looks like there is selective outrage when it comes to questioning vaccine decisions.The press have been on a curious trend lately of sowing confusion and delivering conflicting information on the Covid-19 vaccines. CBS News gave false claims about some of the vaccines, YouTube was blocking videos from prominent doctors due to claimed misinformation, and Dr. Anthony Fauci is walking around delivering conflicting information on a regular basis. This can be dangerous content, and it derives from the media.But they blame Tucker Carlson. He has been the unique focus of the media for months now, and they are ramping up the...

    Once again, what’s going on with vascular events and the AZ/Oxford vaccine? I last wrote about this situation a couple of weeks ago, and it’s taken some real turns since then. At that point several EU countries had suspended dosing, but over the next week several began administering the vaccine again after the European Medicines Agency recommended it, in some cases with advisories about which age groups should be targeted. But there’s more to the story, it seems. Here’s an excellent writeup at Science (open access) by Kai Kupferschmidt and Gretchen Vogel. A possible concern is what’s being called vaccine-induced...

    There are similarities between the blood clotting issues seen in people after getting two different COVID-19 vaccines, Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Wednesday. “There are some rather strong similarities about this with regard to the timeframe following vaccination, particularly importantly, the clinical syndrome of these clots together with low platelets, so there are a lot of similarities there that you just can’t miss,” the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said on NBC’s “Today” show. Fauci was comparing issues with Johnson & Johnson’s shot with those experienced by people who have had AstraZeneca’s jab. U.S....

    President Donald Trump, the pioneer of Operation Warp Speed, is condemning the FDA's decision to temporarily pull the Johnson & Johnson vaccine from use after rare incidents of blood clotting. He's also accusing the agency of favoring Pfizer. "The Biden Administration did a terrible disservice to people throughout the world by allowing the FDA and CDC to call a “pause” in the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. The results of this vaccine have been extraordinary but now it’s reputation will be permanently challenged. The people who have already taken the vaccine will be up in arms, and...

    In the U.S., a Miami physician died following complications of immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) after his first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. ITP is a rare autoimmune condition in which the body generates autoantibodies to its own platelets, resulting in low platelet counts, blood clots, and bleeding if the platelet count drops very low. About 50,000 adults are diagnosed with ITP in the U.S. per year. Risk is increased in young women and people with other autoimmune conditions. In a case series, James Bussel, MD, and colleagues reviewed 20 reports of thrombocytopenia after receipt of the Pfizer and Moderna...

    Johnson & Johnson's coronavirus vaccine rollout hit several unfortunate snags this week — some far worse than others. The New York Times reported on Tuesday that 62 million of the company's vaccine doses must be checked for contamination, following an error at a Maryland manufacturing plant that already ruined 15 million doses. The plant's workers accidentally mixed up some vaccine ingredients last month. Then a vaccination site in Colorado, three sites in North Carolina, and one in Georgia all temporarily stopped administering Johnson & Johnson's shot after about 45 people in total experienced minor adverse reactions involving nausea, dizziness, fainting,...

    A Virginia man suffered a rare reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine that caused a painful rash to spread across his entire body and skin to peel off, doctors said. Richard Terrell, 74, of Goochland began suffering strange symptoms four days after receiving the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, news station WRIC reported. “I began to feel a little discomfort in my armpit and then a few days later I began to get an itchy rash, and then after that I began to swell and my skin turned red,” Terrell told the outlet.
