What will happen to me? Do I have to go to the doctor? Should I be tested? These and many other questions are being asked by those who have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine against covid-19, as a result of this vaccination suspension.
If you receive the Johnson & Johnson covid-19 vaccine, you will need to monitor for symptoms for the next three weeks that may indicate an adverse reaction.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that if you have these symptoms, you should see a doctor:
- Severe headache
- Stomach ache
- Leg pain
- breathing difficulties
Charles Lerner, an infectious disease physician and member of the Texas Medical Association (TMA) Anti-Covid-19 Task Force, said: Until now What other symptoms should you watch out for, such as:
- Severe headache, uncommon and not felt after vaccination, but headache that is progressive and does not subside
- Paralysis or immobilization in any part of the body
- Paralysis or weakness of the muscles on one side of the face
- Vision loss
Health officials said that if it has been three weeks since a person received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and did not show negative symptoms, they are less likely to have an adverse reaction to the vaccine anymore.
About 500,000 Johnson & Johnson vaccines have been given in Texas. State officials said that no cases of backlash have occurred in Texas.
Aurora Rangel, 39, got her Johnson & Johnson vaccine on Saturday, March 27, in Fair Park.
Rangel, who lives in North Texas, learned Tuesday morning that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine had been suspended due to isolated blood clot problems in six people in the United States.
“What do you think, yes I was scared,” said Rangel. “But here I continue to function normally. I think it is more about the mind.”
In an interview, she admitted that her arm grew on the day of the application, but her sister reassured her by telling her that her nerves were pure.
He said, “You told me it was a purely vertical problem.” “I left and went to eat and my head started hurting, but nothing else.”
The opposite case was that of Alma Luna, 50, who said she had been calm after receiving this vaccine a week earlier, on April 6, in Fair Park.
“I had no reaction, only an arm pain,” said Luna. “The truth is, I am not afraid because they only investigate (strokes).”
Luna was vaccinated because she wanted to feel more protected by attending a concert last weekend, although she always knew that she would go inoculation as soon as there was protection against the Coronavirus.
“I am from Chihuahua (Mexico) and there, many known people died, so I wanted to get vaccinated from the start,” he said.
Luna hasn’t had any negative reactions and is confident this will continue for the next few weeks.
