(And how the NWHN Helped Make Them Happen)
Answer: Yes, specific populations may need booster shots but there is not enough evidence to determine if all vaccinated people will need an additional shot to stay protected.
Answer: You’re absolutely right! The Delta variant has been making headlines since it first came on the scene. The NWHN has analyzed the information currently available online so you don’t have to. Here are the facts as of today.
With 45% of the US population vaccinated, many individuals have turned to the internet to share their vaccine side effects. Some women have reported experiencing increased cramping and abnormal period flows after being vaccinated.
With many individuals experiencing changes to their periods, women across the United States are asking the same question: can the COVID-19 vaccine affect my period, and should I be worried?
In light of the recent decision by the U.S. government to resume using Johnson & Johnson vaccines in the race to protect vulnerable people from COVID-19, we are struck by the disparity between publicly disclosed information about the J&J vaccine…
The NWHN is closely following the emerging information on the safety of the J&J COVID-19 vaccine. An unusual type of blood clot has been reported to occur in six women after they received the J&J vaccine. One woman died and one is hospitalized in serious condition.
Some pregnant and lactating individuals have reported feeling hesitant about receiving one of the FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccines due to the exclusion of pregnant and lactating people in the clinical trials. In fact, most drugs and vaccines are never studied in pregnant people, and pregnant people are encouraged to avoid any medications that aren’t absolutely necessary.
The widespread nature of extended post-COVID-19 symptoms has led to the use of a new term, “long COVID-19.”
