A severe allergic reaction has been added to the EU’s list of possible side effects from AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine.
According to the European Medicines Agency (EMA), several probable links between the vaccine and severe allergic reactions have been discovered in the UK.
THEREFORE, the EMA recommends that the product information be updated to note that the vaccine can cause severe reactions, specifically anaphylactic and hypersensitive reactions.
The British-developed vaccine is one of four approved for use in the EU.
On Thursday, March 11, Denmark suspended use of the AstraZeneca vaccine (developed in collaboration with the University of Oxford) completely.
Several countries, including Norway, have paused the vaccine’s use until it has been clarified whether it can lead to blood clots.
