UK PRIME MINISTER, URGES BRITONS TO RECEIVE THEIR COVID-19 VACCINATION, FOLLWOING CONCERNS ABOUT POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS OF OXFORD-ASTRAZENECA VACCINE.

The United Kingdom Prime Minister, BORIS JOHNSON, has urged Britons to receive their Covid-19 vaccination when invited, following concerns about potential side effects of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.
BORIS JOHNSON said getting vaccinated was “the key thing” and the regulator’s advice was to keep giving the jab.
This came after a European Medicines Agency official, speaking in a personal capacity, said there appeared to be a link with the jab and rare blood clots.
Two vaccines – developed by Oxford-AstraZeneca and Pfizer-BioNtech – are being used in the UK, while a third – from Moderna – has been approved.
