Study shows blood clots in Johnson & Johnson vaccine recipients was caused by the vaccine

A new study released looked at the reports of individuals who had a rare type of blood clot following their Johnson & Johnson vaccine called a cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, or CVST.

The data shows there is a significantly higher incidence rate of these clots in people who had the vaccine within 15 days of the vaccination.

Many of the people who experienced the clots had a predisposed risk, like oral contraceptives or  cancer.


The highest rate was among women between the ages of 30 to 49.

Authors of the study warn that the events are rare and it must be taken into account that the vaccine is effective when preventing COVID-19.

The use of the vaccine was originally paused in April after this risk was discovered to do further research.

All the details of the study including outlying factors can be viewed here.
