U.S. regulators on Monday added a new warning to Johnson & Johnson8217;s COVID-19 vaccine about links to a rare and potentially dangerous neurological condition, but said it8217;s not entirely clear the shot is the problem.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) flagged reports of Guillian-Barre syndrome, an immune system disorder that can cause muscle weakness and occasionally paralysis. But health officials are describing the side effect as a 8220;small possible risk8221; for those getting the shot.
The warning, however, comes as COVID-19 cases are surging once again in the country despite billions spent on vaccines, with the Delta variant partly to blame and the majority of people in hospital unvaccinated. Reggie Cecchini reports.
