FDA Limits Authorized Use of J&J’s Covid-19 Vaccine
Agency makes the change after confirming nine deaths tied to a clotting condition among those who received the one-dose shot
The Food and Drug Administration limited the use of the Covid-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson after reviewing the risk of life-threatening blood clots.
The agency said Thursday that the J&J shot’s authorization was now only for adults for whom other shots aren’t available or medically appropriate, or who won’t take another vaccine.
The FDA said it was making the move after confirming a total of 60 cases, including nine deaths, of the clotting condition known as thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome, or TTS, among the millions of people who got the J&J shot.

Gov. DeSantis reportedly banned from NY Museum of Jewish Heritage
Ahead of June’s Jewish Leadership Conference, where Gov. Ron DeSantis will reportedly be a speaker, the New York Museum of Jewish Heritage has banned the governor from its grounds. The ban was first announced in an editorial written for the Wall Street Journal by two of the organizers of the event.
One math textbook was approved by the state after a review process showed pictures portrayed Blacks primarily as athletes.
Another, under the same vetting process, was flagged because it put an emphasis on racism being “embedded in American society.”
Those are some of the examples included in nearly 6,000 pages of records released by the Florida Department of Education that show how state reviewers determined whether 132 math textbooks were fit for Florida classrooms.
