The head of vaccines at the EU Medicines Agency believes that there is a connection between AstraZeneca’s vaccine and cases of blood clots.

“I think we can now say that there is a clear link to the vaccine,” EMA’s vaccine manager Marco Cavaleri said in an interview published in the Italian newspaper Il Messaggero on Tuesday. 

He says it is still not clear what leads to the serious reaction.

This week, the supervisory safety committee (PRAC) will meet, and it is expected that there will be a new recommendation for AstraZeneca’s vaccine Vaxzevria.

Just before Easter, the committee said that no causal link had been proven but that it was possible and should be analyzed further.

Comments from the Norwegian Medicines Agency

Norway’s representative in the EMA, which has been sent from the Norwegian Medicines Agency, is satisfied by the news.

“It is positive that the EMA finally reached the same conclusion,” David Benee Olsen told newspaper Aftenposten.

He added that it is no secret that Norway supported this position for a long time.

  1. That connection has already been “noted” by MANY others.

    Meanwhile, Russia Today claims 37,000 NATO troops have already been deployed in Ukraine, before the Russians started deploying troops along their borders in response.

    If true. World War 3 is imminent.

    So have Norway’s civil defenses/sivillforsvars … for *everyone* … been improved at all since the NRK De Glemte Rommene report in December 2018?

    And are the B-1s now based at Ørland going to be used in the war?
