In turn, Johnson & Johnson suspended distribution of its vaccine in Europe.
In light of these developments, an American was declared dead and was in a critical condition after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Commenting on the suspension of the use of Johnson & Johnson, the White House said: “It will not significantly affect the national vaccination plan.”
25 million doses of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines
He continued, “We produce 25 million doses of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines every week, and we have provided 300 million doses of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines within a few weeks.
These developments come at a time when the European Medicines Authority announced last Friday that it is studying cases of blood clots after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Similar cases of side effects were the latest of the AstraZeneca vaccine, and many countries suspended vaccination with its use, and the second dose was given to those under 55 years using other vaccines, as France announced last week.
The World Health Organization has confirmed that, in the absence of sufficient data, it cannot issue a recommendation on changing the anti-Covid vaccine between two doses, which France intends to do for those under the age of 55 who have received a first dose of AstraZeneca.

And Johnson & Johnson had agreed earlier, to supply up to 400 million vaccines against Corona to the African Union until the end of next year, which gives a boost to a continent that lags behind most countries in the world in the race to vaccinate against the disease.
And in addition, the US pharmaceutical company could provide up to 220 million doses of its single candidate to 55 AU member states starting in the third quarter of 2021.
The statement added that another 180 million could then be delivered in the following year, according to Bloomberg, and was seen by Al-Arabiya.net.
This agreement comes on the heels of agreements with Russian companies AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Sputnik.
