UNITED KINGDOM’S VACCINE ADVISORY BODY TO OFFER UNDER-30S ALTERNATIVE COVID JAB TO ASTRAZENECA JAB
Written by wave FM on April 7, 2021
The United Kingdom’s vaccine advisory body says under-30s are to be offered an alternative Covid jab to the AstraZeneca vaccine due to the evidence linking it to rare blood clots.
It sad a review by drugs regulator MHRA found out that by the end of March 79 people in the UK had suffered rare blood clots after vaccination and 19 of whom had died.
The regulator said this was not proof the jab had caused the clots.
But it said the link was getting firmer.
