Slovenia suspends Johnson & Johnson vaccine after young woman’s death

Slovenia will stop administering Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine while it investigates the death of a 20-year-old woman which could have been related to the jab, the country’s health minister has said.

A young woman who was inoculated with the J&J jab two weeks ago died on Tuesday after developing “blood clots and bleeding in the brain at the same time,” according to medics.

The tragic news prompted the Slovenian authorities to temporarily suspend the use of the Janssen vaccine, Health Minister Janez Poklukar announced during a press conference on Wednesday.

The J&J shots will remain frozen until the probe into the possible link between the woman’s death and the jab is completed, he added.

Some 120,000 people in Slovenia have already been injected with the vaccine, and this is the second case of adverse effects following inoculation, Poklukar said. He insisted, however, that “the benefits of vaccination outweigh the potential complications from it.”
