J&J pause will go down as one of the deadliest mistakes in USG history. Disaster.

You seriously think it was purely a coincidence that nationwide vaccination rates just *happened* to nosedive the exact same weekend the J&J “safety pause” was announced?? Come on mannnnnnn. Just Google the graph lol it’s the most obvious thing ever. But if u prefer anecdotes,

I had dozens of patients mention to me back then that their hesitancy was caused by safety concerns sparked by that announcement. And before you ask, since my patients are laypeople, they simply do not understand that a safety issue with j&J is irrelevant to Pfizer

The AstraZeneca vaccine was halted in many countries and throughout Europe, but didn’t have the same affect.

We can both be right: we are a uniquely paranoid and data illiterate country with totally unfounded but widespread concerns r/t the possibility of major side effects from the vax, and the J&J pause really crystallized those fears for about 10-20% of the population
