The British Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has not found any connection between blood clots and AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine. A few special cases will be investigated further.

The review says that the available information does not indicate that the vaccine leads to blood clots in the veins.

A more detailed assessment of reports of five specific and rare cases of blood clots in the veins of the brain in combination with a low number of platelets is still ongoing, the MHRA audit states. 

The review says the benefits of the vaccine far outweigh the risks.

A number of countries have recently paused the use of the vaccine after blood clots were detected in some of those who received the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The EU Medicines Agency has announced that it will reach its conclusion on the vaccine’s safety on Thursday afternoon.
