New questions over safety of AstraZeneca vaccine for young adults raised by UK – BBC News


From BBC News.

The UK government has raised new questions about the safety of the AstraZeneca vaccine for young adults.

The UK’s leading health experts have issued new guidance following evidence that in extremely rare cases people who’ve had the vaccine have developed blood clots.

The UK regulator, the MHRA, said the guidance was not proof the vaccine had caused the clots but it said the link was getting firmer.

So from now on people in the UK aged between 18 and 29 will be offered an alternative to the Oxford-AstraZeneca jab.

The regulator has insisted that the benefits of taking the AstraZeneca vaccine — still far outweigh the risks for the vast majority of people.
