AstraZeneca Vaccine Stroke, Blood Clot Cases Rise Again

Curacao Chronicle | AMSTERDAM – An unexpected increase in the number of people exhibiting different types of blood clots after being given the first dose of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine warrants more research, Dutch side effects center Lareb said.

Aside from the established link between the vaccine and a combination of blood clots with a low platelet count, the center also received more case reports than expected for other clotting, like deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.

In data gathered from four million vaccinations, the number of side effect reports amongst people vaccinated with AstraZeneca was one and a half times higher than expected.

Lareb said this was not enough to draw a link between the vaccine and certain blood clot cases as a higher rate of those vaccinated early are people more likely to be at higher risk of a clot incident. That includes those of advanced age, and people who are obese.

After about a million shots of the AstraZeneca vaccine had been given in the Netherlands, 150 blood clot incidents were reported in total, of which 136 were considered serious.

Reuters – The Canadian province of Alberta reported its first death of a patient from a rare blood clot condition after receiving the AstraZeneca (AZN.L) COVID-19 vaccine, its chief medical officer said.

Canada has reported at least five cases of blood clots following immunization with the vaccine, but public health officials maintain the benefits of the AstraZeneca shot outweigh the potential risks.

The Alberta case, of a woman in her 50s, marks the second case of blood clots. It’s the only death after more than 253,000 doses of AstraZeneca were administered in the province, chief medical officer Dr. Deena Hinshaw said in a statement on Tuesday.

“While any death is tragic, it is important to remember that the risks of dying or suffering other severe outcomes from COVID-19 remain far greater than the risk following AstraZeneca vaccine,” Hinshaw said.
