No blood clotting in Covid-19 vaccine takers in Bangladesh

No blood clotting in Covid-19 vaccine takers in Bangladesh

More than 45 million COVID shots by all manufacturers have been administered across the EU and the European Economic Area since vaccinations started nearly three months ago.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said that use of the vaccine should continue while the five reports were investigated.

The British-Swedish jab has been dogged by controversy from early on in its rollout, after some countries initially recommended it for people over the age of 65 and then backpedalled, saying there was insufficient data for people in the age group that had received the shot.

A World Health Organization expert group is assessing the latest safety data and will communicate the findings once the review is completed, it said in a statement.

About 15 countries, including Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Portugal, have suspended the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine as a precaution, after the emergence of serious blood problems such as blood clotting in some of those who received it. It turned out that the vaccine worsened the effects of dengue in any children who hadn't been previously infected.

Before we talk about some of these alleged side effects, I think we should stress that this is not a shot - the AstraZeneca vaccine is not being administered in the USA, so nobody here is getting these shots just yet.

Because the cheap, easy-to-store shot has lower overall efficacy than the expensive, fragile Moderna and Pfizer shots, some Europeans and Britons have refused their doses of AstraZeneca's vaccine.

And Poland announced a three-week partial lockdown of its own, while Papua New Guinea's minister for health Jelta Wong issued an urgent appeal for vaccines to stave off a wave of new infections.

In 2013, Democrats established that a simple majority vote could advance nominees for lower-court judgeships and federal agencies. Supreme Court and then Congress itself on January 6 to nullify the rights of states to hold elections as they see fit.

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization says there is now enough "real-world evidence" to show the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is both safe and effective for seniors.

The German government defended its decision to suspend the use of the vaccine, saying it was based on expert advice.

"Once the genie is out of the bottle, and public confidence in vaccines has been diminished, it may be hard to restore trust", William Moss, director of the International Vaccine Access Center at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, wrote, in part, to Fox News.

But because there is no long-term data on any of the COVID-19 vaccines, any potential signal of trouble must be thoroughly investigated.

Given the extremely rare rate of occurrence of these CSVT events among the 11 million people vaccinated, and as a link to the vaccine is unproven, the benefits of the vaccine in preventing COVID-19, with its associated risk of hospitalisation and death, continue to outweigh the risks of potential side effects.

For example, it took almost a year after vaccination campaigns began against the 2009 swine flu pandemic for European officials to notice an increase in narcolepsy in children and teenagers who got the GlaxoSmithKline vaccine.

"As of now we do not know whether some or all of the conditions have been caused by the vaccine or by other coincidental factors". "And this is at a time when we need to stop the virus circulating to the reduce the chances of further variants emerging".
