Cases of rare blood clots identified after AstraZeneca Covid-19 jabs

Australia investigates possible link of blood clot case to vaccine

Australia investigates possible link of blood clot case to vaccine

But some countries, including Denmark and Norway, have paused vaccinations with the jab.

"There should be no doubt whatsoever about the safety of vaccines".

Health minister Hugo de Jonge has said every adult in the country who wants to be vaccinated will have had at least one dose by the beginning of July. The MHRA said on Friday that of the 30 cases, there had been seven deaths.

As of March 24, there were 22 cases of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis and another eight cases of thrombosis with low platelets. She died on March 29 of a blood clot on the brain.

"The benefits in preventing a COVID-19 infection and its complications continue to outweigh any risks and the public should continue to get their vaccine when invited to do so", June Raine, MHRA chief executive, told United Kingdom broadcaster the BBC.

But it also recalls that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) confirms the positive benefit/risk balance of vaccination with AstraZeneca in the prevention of Covid-19. This is only 12% of the adult population.

The Netherlands on Friday joined Germany in suspending the vaccine's use in people under 60.

Spain had restricted the vaccine for under-65s, but it reversed its decision, extending the roll-out to those over 65, on Tuesday.

UK AstraZeneca recipients die of clots; regulator: Benefits outweigh risks
Several nations, including Canada, France, Germany and Spain, limited its use after similar reports. Overall, about one in every million people have this clot every year anyway, the GP explained.

Canada, for instance, suspended use for those under the age of 55 while Germany has largely halted the jabs for those under 60.

Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the European Commission (EC) has blamed pharmaceutical firms - primarily AstraZeneca - for not delivering the promised doses to the continent.

He said the illness was "likely" related to the vaccine, but investigations continue and there is no definitive evidence of any link.

Latin America and the Caribbean have passed the 25 million mark for recorded coronavirus cases, as a surge in infections sees countries place restrictions on travel and movement while vaccine campaigns catch up.

In total, some 400,000 people were given the AstraZeneca vaccine during the period the problems were reported.

At least 2 839 849 people have died of Covid-19 around the world since the outbreak emerged in China in December 2019, according to an AFP tally from official sources at 13:00 GMT Saturday.
