COVID 19 Vaccine AstraZeneca safe for use

Government Response to temporarily suspended vaccine in other countries supported by World Health Organisation and Medicine and Healthcare product Regulatory Agency

‘This is a precautionary measure by the Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic authorities. It has not been confirmed that the report of a blood clot was caused by the AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine. People should go and get their COVID-19 vaccine when asked to do so’

The MHRA said more than 11 million doses of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine had been given so far in the UK and reports of blood clots received were not greater than the number that would have occurred naturally in the general population.

A statement from AstraZeneca said a careful review of all available safety data of more than 17 million people vaccinated in the EU and UK ‘has shown no evidence of an increased risk of pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis or thrombocytopeniain any defined age group, gender, batch or in any particular country.’

It added that to date there had been 15 events of DVT and 22 events of pulmonary embolism reported among those given the vaccine – much lower than would be expected in the general population and a similar rate to reports from other licensed vaccines.

The Practice is open as normal and if you need to see your GP, please send us an Engage Consult request  or if you do not have IT technology then please telephone 0161 983 5333 to arrange an initial telephone/video appointment. If through mutual agreement you and the clinician decide that you do need to come into the practice, this face to face appointment will be made for you. You can also call NHS 111.
