CDC Confirms mRNA Jabs Linked To Rare Cases Of Heart Inflammation In Young Men

European health authorities have more or less confirmed that adenovirus-vector vaccines produced by AstraZeneca and J&J can, in rare instances, cause potentially deadly cerebral brain clots in patients with low blood-platelet counts. These findings, which were hinted at during the late-stage trials for the AstraZeneca vaccine (which saw its US trials halted for a month over safety issues) have led to some European governments imposing restrictions on the vaccines.

Fortunately for the US, there hasn’t been any evidence of potentially serious (and rare) side effects – until a few weeks ago, when it was first reported that the CDC was scrambling to hold an emergency meeting to discuss a problem.
