Information about the risk of Clots with Astra Zeneca vaccine
The UK regulator’s position remains that the benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine continue to outweigh the risks for the vast majority of people.
The MHRA in its latest weekly summary of Yellow Card reporting, has said that by April 14 it had received reports of 168 cases of major thromboembolic events (blood clots) with concurrent thrombocytopenia (low platelet counts) in people who had had the AstraZeneca making the overall case incidence 7.9 per million doses given.
The risk of getting a blood clot with Astra Zeneca is tiny.
7.9 per million people vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine will develop blood clots with low platelets Risk is 0.00079%
Compare the risk
The risk of a blood clot is much higher in a person who smokes, gets pregnant or travels on a plane yet we don’t ban these activities because of the risk of getting a blood clot.
