How safe is the vaccine?

Dated: 18-Mar-21

It has not been confirmed that the reports of blood clots were cause by the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

Dr Phil Bryan, MHRA* Vaccines Safety Lead said:

"More than 11 million doses of the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca have now been administered across the UK, and the number of blood clots reported after having the vaccine is not greater than the number that would have occurred naturally in the vaccinated population."

People should still go and get their COVID-19 vaccine when asked to do so. 

*Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency Responsible for ensuring that medicines and medical devices work and are acceptably safe.
