It seems that those thinking to get a COVID-19 vaccine are confronting with a situation that becomes more and more complicated. While many of those people who receive a vaccine don’t manifest very unpleasant side effects, there are still individuals experiencing unexpected situations.
According to a new article from Reuters, the British regulator cites 41 more cases of blood clot reports following AstraZeneca vaccinations. But even so, there is still some good news in all this scheme.
The benefits of the vaccine are outweighing the risks
Britain’s medicine regulator also added that the benefits of the vaccine manufactured by AstraZeneca are still outweighing the risks. As a result of rare blood clots occurring mostly in younger people, some countries have recommended that only those over a certain age should be vaccinated with AstraZeneca’s drug.
Earlier in April, HealthThoroughfare.com has written an article about how the AstraZeneca vaccine for COVID is officially linked to blood clots.
Marco Cavaleri, who is the EMA head of vaccines, declared for Italy’s Il Messaggero newspaper the following:
In my opinion, we can say it now; it is clear there is a link with the vaccine. But we still do not know what causes this reaction.
In the next few hours, we will say that there is a connection, but we still have to understand how this happens.
Until now, a total of over a billion vaccine doses for COVID were given across the world.
