After 10 days, the FDA is once again letting people get the J&J vaccine, having figured out what everyone else knew: that the risk from not getting vaccinated is much higher than the blood clot risk. cnet.com/health/cdc-and-fda-re

On April 19, 1993, over 80 people, including children, died as a result of an outrageous abuse of law enforcement power. mcgath.com/placecalled.html
