London – According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) vaccine experts on reports about a link between AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 jabs and blood clots is plausible but unconfirmed. The WHO has also stressed that reported occurrences were “very rare”.
The statement by WHO global Advisory Committee on vaccine safety said in a statement, “Based on current information, a causal relationship between the vaccine and the occurrence of blood clots with low platelets is considered plausible but is not confirmed.”
“Specialised studies are needed to fully understand the potential relationship between vaccination and possible risk factors.”
There have been 79 cases of rare blood clots, resulting in 19 deaths, in people who received the AstraZeneca vaccine in Britain, the country’s medicines regulator who is chief executive of MHRA reported on Wednesday.
