Personally, I would refuse the J&J vaccine due to the multiple issues they've had with this vaccine. I really didn't understand why anyone would want it in the first place due to the shortened effectiveness period. I would not refuse to give it if this was a person's vaccine of choice.
"The symptoms were “consistent with known common side effects,” the county said. In clinical trials, the most common side effects of the Johns on & Johnson vaccine were headaches and fatigue, followed by muscle aches, nausea and fever.
Of the 18 people, 14 were treated onsite, while four were sent to a local hospital, the county said."
Don't you wonder if the "side-effects" aren't similar to a "herd immunity" type of thing? Lots of press, lots of talk about that particular vaccine issues (blood clots, etc)...could this lead to anxiety/panic reaction resulting in the noted sx of headache/fatigue? One person faints, another, and another....And frankly and truthfully, I'd be afraid of J&J after all the bad press.
I was working in a low income senior facility recently. Fire Department administered Moderna to all residents who wanted a vaccine. A few days later, almost every single person talked about side effects necessitating bed rest, visits to doctors. In the meantime, I've talked to many others in the community who received Moderna who reported no side effects or only slightly uncomfortable muscle aches, sore arm, etc. I find this sort of stuff interest.
