From Global News.

The European Union’s drug regulator said Wednesday that it found a “possible link” between the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine and a rare blood clotting disorder, but recommended that vaccinations continue in adults, saying the benefits of the shot still outweigh risks.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) described the clots as “very rare” side effects. It said most of the cases reported have occurred in women under 60 within two weeks of vaccination — but based on the currently available evidence, it was not able to identify specific risk factors.

But, it placed no new age restrictions on using the vaccine in people 18 and over, as some countries have done.

Crystal Goomansingh explains the findings.
