EMA: AZ blood clots conclusion –  LIVE @ 15:00

EMA held virtual press briefing on conclusion of the evaluation of a safety signal with Vaxzevria (previously COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca).  It concerned cases of thromboembolic events like blood clots.  Hosted by EMA’s safety committee (PRAC).

The EU medicine regulator said that the benefits of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine outweigh the risks of Covid but “unusual blood clots with low blood platelets should be listed as very rare side effects”.  The EMA concluded that the vaccination as a whole is “extremely important” in the fight against Covid-19.

“Covid-19 is a very serious disease with high hospitalisation and death rates and everyday Covid still causing thousands of deaths across the EU.  “This vaccine has proven to be highly effective – it prevents severe disease and hospitalisation, and it is saving lives,” Emer Cooke, executive director of the EMA told the press briefing on Wednesday.
