Denmark Drops Johnson & Johnson Covid Vaccine Due To Side Effects


Denmark seems to be leading the pack in keeping its citizens safe from experimental vaccines.

On the heels of a massive Covid-19 vaccination campaign in the US comes breaking news from Denmark, where they have dropped the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to side effects.

Denmark already stopped using the AstraZeneca covid vaccine 2 months ago when they noticed serious blood clots after vaccinations.

Now, they are continuing their mass Covid-19 vaccination program without the vaccine from Johnson & Johnson due to the same reason.

The news has been all over Twitter:

As one Twitter user said, Denmark did this because they see the benefits do not outweigh the risks:

It is so nice to see a country putting the health and safety of its people first!

The Danish Health Authority discussed its decision to halt J&J vaccines due to the severity of the blood clots:

The Danish Health Authority has concluded that the benefits of using the COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson do not outweigh the risk of causing the possible adverse effect, VITT, in those who receive the vaccine. Therefore, the Danish Health Authority will continue the Danish mass vaccination programme against COVID-19 without the COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson.

The Danish Health Authority has reviewed the use of the COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson in the Danish COVID-19 vaccination programme based on international data and statements released in the last month. In addition, a team of Danish experts has contributed to the evaluation of the vaccine.

In the midst of an epidemic, this has been a difficult decision to make, especially since we have also had to discontinue using the COVID-19 vaccine from AstraZeneca. However, taking the present situation in Denmark into account, what we are currently losing in our effort to prevent severe illness from COVID-19 cannot outweigh the risk of causing possible side effects in the form of severe blood clots in those we vaccinate. One should also bear in mind that, going forward, we will first and foremost be vaccinating younger and healthy people,” says Deputy Director General Helene Probst.

The Danish Health Authority also highlighted that further studies on women and blood clots need to be considered:

The Danish Health Authority will continue to review the ongoing release of data from, e.g. the U.S. Health and Drug Administration that due to the current epidemic in the United States has chosen to include the COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson in their vaccination campaign. In particular, we need more insight and data on the vaccine’s safety to determine whether women are more at risk of unusual but severe blood clotting events than men or vice versa.

How refreshing to see a country make its citizens’ health a priority.

Let’s hope other countries follow Denmark in taking vaccine side effects more seriously.

Way to go, Denmark!
