FDA To Add Warning Over Rare Neurological Side Effects Linked To J&J Jabs

The NYT and WaPo reported on Monday that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine has been found to be associated with even more rare side effects that could be potentially harmful to a small number of patients who accept the vaccine. According to the reports, the FDA has determined that the vaccine can lead to an increased risk of a rare neurological condition known as Guillain-Barré syndrome, anther setback for a one-shot ‘miracle’ jab that has been sidelined in the US.

Although chances of developing the disease are extremely small, the link between the jab and the symptoms has been well-established. Patients who receive the J&J jab are 3-5x more likely to exhibit the rare syndrome.
