Welcome to the eighth issue of the 2021 edition of Unprecedented. Perhaps the biggest news from these last two weeks was the decision to suspend administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine pending investigation into blood clots experienced by six of the vaccine’s millions of recipients. Beyond its impact on achieving the Biden administration’s vaccination goals, it has also prompted significant discussion about its potential to cause an uptick in vaccine hesitancy. That could have impacts on public health measures meant to slow the spread of COVID-19, which could in turn have broader impacts on the economy. The exact consequences remain to be seen, however, and we continue to track impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic on mass gatherings, insurance coverage, and even the right to a speedy trial. Join us as we discuss these and other issues.
