Europe’s caution over Oxford vaccine about more than the science | World news | The Guardian

Experts say that the numbers of blood clots and thrombocytopenia cases in people who have been vaccinated is no higher than in the population that has not received the jab. The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis, representing medical experts around the world, said on Friday that “the small number of reported thrombotic events relative to the millions of administered Covid-19 vaccinations does not suggest a direct link”.

Blood clots are common, they said, but not more common in people who have had a Covid jab, from evidence so far. They recommended that even people with a history of blood clots or taking blood-thinning drugs should go and get their vaccination.

  1. Hmmm, interesting.
    In that case, someone seems to have taken the ball and run with it, rather than pointing out that the AstraZenca thrombosis cases were part of the normal non-vax number of typical thrombosis cases?

    1. Actually, much lower than in general population. Politicians who totally blew their initial reaction to the pandemic, managing to blow it again with over-reaction.
