ALTERNATIVE VACCINES TO ASTRAZENECA FOR PEOPLE BELOW 30 IN UK

Highlights:

•          The MHRA has stated that the blood clots have affected 79 people

•          124 people died due to the condition in the UK

It was reported that AstraZeneca’s covid vaccine is causing blood clots in people. The UK health authorities state that these are rare cases. However, 14 people have already died due to the complications arising from covid vaccine jabs.

With an increasing number of evidence making the vaccine by Astra Zeneca a high-risk vaccine, people under the age of 30 will now be given another vaccine option. This was announced by the UK’s medicines regulator on Wednesday.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) have been monitoring the developments closely. It the regulatory body has also admitted that though in a small number of people, the vaccine does lead to blood clotting. The MHRA stated that 79 officially suffered from post-vaccination blood clot problems. Out of these 79, 14 died. However, the regulatory body states that it still does not mean that only the vaccination caused the problems.
