CANADA PAUSING USE OF ASTRAZENECA VACCINE FOR THOSE BELOW 55


31/03/2021




Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- The Canadian government has suspended the application of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine against the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) to people under the age of 55 because it causes "blood clotting."

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) ​had previously recommended a halt to the use of the vaccine, citing some safety risks.

"Given the potential risks, there is significant uncertainty about the benefit of using the AstraZeneca vaccine in adults under the age of 55," NACI Vice President Dr. Shelley Deeks said in a statement.

Deeks said that according to information from Europe, among people who received the AstraZeneca vaccine, those who experienced blood clotting were mostly adult women under the age of 55, and the mortality rate in patients with these symptoms reached a fairly high rate of 40%.
