A Danish doctor believes that the blood clots that may be linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine are due to inadequate vaccination techniques. The Norwegian Medicines Agency will discuss the theory.
“We are familiar with the theory and will discuss it. We can not say more yet,” medical director Steinar Madsen at the Norwegian Medicines Agency wrote in an SMS to news bureau NTB.
The retired doctor Torben Sørensen and professor Niels Høiby at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen presented their theory in Sundhedspolitisk Tidsskrift.
They believe the vaccines are administered incorrectly so that the substances end up directly in the bloodstream, not in the shoulder muscles where they actually belong.
“If the vaccine is administered in the wrong way, it can – in the worst case – lead to such a violent, systematic, and inflammatory reaction that it can lead to many small blood clots, including in the lungs,” Høiby said.
