The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is reportedly giving blood clots to recipients of the COVID shot.

Europeans have suspended the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine until they can figure out why it’s giving people severe blood clots.

Now, in a bizarre moment, Tanja Erichson, Denmark’s Head of Medicine collapsed during a press conference where they were announcing that Denmark will be the first European nation to discontinue the use of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

The video below shows the moment Ms. Erichson went down and how quickly those around her acted to keep her safe, by quickly elevating her legs above her heart.

BBC has curiously removed the video of Erichson passing out, claiming they’ve removed it for “editorial reasons.’

BBC reports – Denmark has ceased giving the Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid vaccine amid concerns about rare cases of blood clots, the first European country to do so fully.

The move is expected to delay the country’s vaccination program by several weeks.

Drug watchdog the European Medicines Agency last week announced a possible link with clots but said the risk of dying of Covid-19 was much greater.

Several European countries had previously briefly suspended the jab.

Most have now resumed vaccinations with Astra Zeneca, but often with limits to older age groups.

On Tuesday, the US, Canada, and the European Union paused the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for similar reasons over clotting.

South Africa has also paused its use, despite the Johnson & Johnson being its preferred vaccine because of its effectiveness against the South African variant.

For both AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson, the blood clot side effects are extremely rare.
