Washington Woman Dies From Blood Clots After Receiving J&J Vaccine

SEATTLE (AP) – Washington state health authorities say a woman in her late 30s has died from a rare blood-clotting syndrome after receiving the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

Public Health Seattle & King County said Tuesday the woman was the fourth person in the United States to die due to blood clotting issues following the J&J vaccine.

The King County woman received her shot on Aug. 26. She died on Sept. 7.

Blood clots are a very rare complication associated with J&J’s vaccine.

According to King County authorities, 12.5 million doses of the J&J vaccine had been administered as of July 8, 2021, with 38 people having confirmed cases of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome.

The majority of these people have recovered.
