The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday said they were investigating potentially dangerous blood clots in six women who received the single-dose COVID-19 vaccine. In the meantime, they recommended the country pause use of the shot. The reported complications appeared in women within two weeks of vaccination, and they also had low platelets in veins that drain blood from the brain. Federal officials want time to investigate and educate doctors on spotting and treating the clots.
