The Ministry of Health reported that lThe Region of Murcia will receive 4,650 doses of Janssen vaccines this Wednesday, from the batch of 146,000 doses that Spain received this Tuesday. It should be remembered that the Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, together with the director of the AEMPS, María Jesús Lamas, received this Tuesday night the first 146,000 doses of Janssen, which will be distributed from this Wednesday to the autonomous communities.
“It is a day in which we show satisfaction for continuing to contribute with one more vaccine, in this case that of Janssen, to continue inoculating all citizens of our country. Vaccinate, vaccinate and vaccinate. That is the objective of the Government of Spain, the autonomous communities and cities, ”said the minister. During the Senate Health Commission, Darias already announced that he is ready to receive the coronavirus vaccine developed by Janssen “immediately”, once the company lifts the recommendation not to administer it in Europe. The safety committee of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) concluded that the overall benefit-risk remains positive when administering this vaccine.
However, the agency confirmed that it was observed “A possible link to very rare cases” from unusual blood clots related to low blood platelets, which would be the triggers of thrombi. Thus, as he did two weeks ago with the AstraZeneca vaccine, he concludes that a warning should be added to the product information and these events are listed as very rare side effects of the vaccine. Everything comes after the American Drug Agency (FDA) stopped vaccination with this vaccine last week, and the company itself announced that it was delaying the launch in Europe. Darias recalled that Spain goes “hand in hand” with the EMA and that a single vaccination strategy has been launched, agreed within the Interterritorial Council of the National Health System (CISNS), in which all the autonomous communities are represented .
