Joseph Prezioso/Getty Images US agencies may need two weeks or more to know if Johnson & Johnson's shot causes rare blood clots. The CDC is shuffling to collect more data, two senior White House health officials told Politico. But medical experts worry that pausing the shot for much longer could increase vaccine hesitancy.

COVID-19 itself could cause blood clots much more often than vaccines, data shows, as regulators wrestle with pausing rollouts

A woman receives a dose of COVID-19 vaccine in Los Angeles, California, on December 17. REUTERS/Lucy Nicholson Experts at the University of Oxford noted the relative risks of blood clots amid debate over vaccines. A study released Thursday included data noting that clots also occur as a result of COVID-19. It suggests that, overall, pausing vaccinations may also cause clots by letting the virus spread further.

Ben Hasty/MediaNews Group/Reading Eagle/Getty Images AstraZeneca's coronavirus vaccine may be linked to a type of rare blood clot in the brain. The same type of clot might also be associated with J&J's shot, but regulators aren't sure yet. Experts wonder whether the clotting issues are related, since both shots use the same technology.
