Johnson & Johnson vaccine – Opinion??
I am seriously considering getting the J&J vaccine because I need to be vaxxed for my job (my job involves travel). Corporate has recently changed their policy.
Can anyone please give their honest input on the J&J? Any research? I’ve only started trying to look at the side effects and want to find more info. …I know Chris has already commented on the mRNA vaccines Pfizer & moderna (not a fan) so I am not going that route, but I haven’t seen him comment on the J&J.
Feedback much appreciated,
I actually sought out the J&J jab. Liked the one-and-done aspect, and really didn’t like what I was reading about the lipid nanoparticles (escaping injection site & ending up all over the body) in the mRNA jabs.
I had absolutely no side effects. Took Vitamin-E and baby aspirin for a month to reduce possibility of clots. Glad to have it done with and not have to sweat the “second jab jitters” for 3-4 weeks.
Whole world (China / Russia / Europe-AstraZeneca) went adenovirus vector. There’s some indication these may be slightly weaker against the Delta variant, but it looks to me like EVERYONE will be getting boosters this Fall. I’m hoping Novavax will be ready by then.
At the end of the day, J&J does the same thing that the lipid nanoparticle vaccines do, i.e. it takes over your ribosomes via mRNA and cranks out spike proteins that will, among the other potential havok they wreak, cause your immune system to create antibodies.
It’s one shot from what I recall.. so I guess that’s better than two.
If I ever decided to take a shot, and I don’t expect to.. but if I did, and there were no newer, traditional, killed virus type shots available, I would take this one. Why? Because among the mRNA vaccines, this is the one that a smart biochemist has the best chance of shutting down.
Adam Gaertner has a lecture on this topic online that you can review here;

This one is a bear to post: Adam’s website is Covidcandy.net.. find the talk there
If you can stop the adenovirus from getting through to the nucleus of your cells, you can shut down the entire process. Ivermectin can help in this regard.
Dmitry Kats, PhD, also thinks that (flush) Niacin in 1 gram doses can alleviate vax injury, but as usual this is on very limited real data. I take Niacin and would think it could only be beneficial in terms of mitigating potential vax injury but I have no data to prove it. I wish you all the best, Jim

Wife and I had J&J in Mid March.
So far so good. Just minimal side effect for a day or so following the shot.
Does anyone know what the VEARS data looks like for J&J compared to the others?
I already know my work is going to require one soon, but would like to receive only one dose of this toxic crap. Additionally, it seems like they are having problems figuring out what to do with boosters re J&J and I figure this might be a way to claim I can’t take boosters in the future. (I know wishful thinking).
I wouldn’t waste time with J&J. Its the more of the same garbage in different flavor – Its more old school, but, has its own problems.
As for the not being an initial 2 shot sequence, it does not preclude the requirement for your weekly updates. The coronavirus is not something we become immune to after infection more than 6 mos – 1 yr. Vaccines, are based on your immune system, though they want to hack your dna , they are not substitutes for your immune system function.
There is no durability to any of the shots. The idea is not a booster in the sense of traditional boosters where immunity may wane over 10 years. It is more “we need to keep the B antibodies elevated” this is a state of chronic immune stimulation.. like i have an ongoing infection forever. They are clueless and misleading with this – we will need updates every year like the flu. Totally different purpose , totally different action.
I agree with you in principle, but now they are going after people’s livelihoods. I got small kids and no real other options. It’s pretty sad really.
My goal isn’t to be safe for coronavirus. I don’t really care (im young, healthy and run 30 miles a week). QCovid gives me like 1 in 200,000 odds of dying. And I also figure they are all about 20% effective anyway. I just want the lowest adverse events. Is that J&J or one of these other terrible brands?
When my brother decided to get the vaccine I advised him to get the J&J.
One reason was that it did not contain poly glycol which seems to be a major factor in anaphylaxis. Another reason was that it was one shot rather than two. A third reason was that was not mRNA (even thought it was not a conventional deactivated virus vaccine.) He got it and had no problem but I don’t claim to know its overall safety.
You can go to VAERS and search for adverse results by individual vaccine. For instance, you can search for adverse events for Moderna or for Pfizer or for the J&J. If you do that search, note that the J&J vaccine is called “Janssen.” Simply select for “Janssen” and run the search.
It takes a while to figure out but it is doable.
I would get those adverse event numbers and follow up with a search for Pfizer. Then take down Pfizer’s numbers as well.
Then do an internet (non VAERS) search for total J&J shots given and total Pfizer shots give. After that, just do that math. This is not a perfect solution but better than nothing.
One thing to consider is this. Now that Pfizer is approved by the FDA, will the J&J vaccine continue to have an EUA? After all, an EUA is only available if there are no other options available. Since that is no longer true, do Moderna and J&J lose their EUA’s now that Pfizer has been approved.
I don’t know the law behind EUA’s but it is something to consider.
I had the J&J vaccine in May. I tend to have strong reactions to medical things, so I wanted the single dose jab. I felt sick and weak the day after the vaccine, but after that had no adverse effects. Prior to this, I had not had any vaccines for 30 years.
After taking nearly a year of to help care for my elderly mother, I will soon be returning to work in a medical office. My state (WA) has mandated the vaccine for those who work in health care.
Because of the delta variant, I am also taking prophylactic ivermectin (prescription from my ND) and following the I-MASK protocol.
I have followed Chris for years and appreciate his take on all things Covid related. Still, I have zero regrets about getting vaccinated.
How much vitamin E did you take daily?
