A third of Danes reject AstraZeneca's Covid jab

Denmark to extend suspension of Astra Zeneca COVID shot amid doubts

"The public should be reassured by the fact that over 20 million doses of this vaccine have been given in the EEA and the United Kingdom providing protection to those who have received it". "You should schedule it yourself as per the recommended gap between the two doses of the vaccine", Sharma said.

"Analysis of AstraZeneca's safety database on tens of millions of records for Covid-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca did not show that these events occurred any more commonly than would be expected naturally in millions of people", a statement said.

Before the new results were released, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top US infectious disease expert, told reporters he hoped that when all the data was publicly vetted by the FDA, it would dispel any hesitancy caused by the spat.

The latest analysis finds the vaccine to be 76% effective against symptomatic COVID-19 and 100% effective against severe or critical disease and hospitalization. Previous studies have turned up inconsistent data about its effectiveness, and then last week a scare about blood clots had some countries temporarily pausing inoculations.

Causing most concern is a combination of blood clots, haemorrhaging and low blood platelet levels that was rare but occasionally fatal.

Nancy Pelosi says the Biden administration has the border situation 'under control'
I haven't seen a plan". "They have created a humanitarian crisis down here at this border". But it's clear they are engaged in a huge cover-up to hide just how bad things truly are.

Sweden is now in the second phase of its vaccination programme, meaning the vaccine is offered to people aged over 65 (the oldest first), people in certain risk groups including transplant recipients, and healthcare staff working in close contact with people in these categories. On Thursday, Denmark announced it would continue its suspension of the vaccine.

Data published by the State's medicines watchdog the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA) this evening showed that ten people who have received the vaccine in Ireland so far have reported clotting. In the USA study, it was 85% effective in volunteers 65 and older, the company said.

European Union attacks on AstraZeneca call into question its decision not to profit from its coronavirus vaccine, according to a leading member of the scientific team that delivered the breakthrough. The agency will publicly debate all the evidence with its outside advisers before making a decision. Such rifts during ongoing studies typically remain confidential. "Results fluctuate as data accumulate. what counts will be the FDA assessment and that will be done based on scrutiny of the full data and not press releases".

Healthcare professionals are likewise told to report any suspected adverse reactions associated with the use of the vaccine in accordance with national reporting guidelines.

Asked by The Local if the small potential risk of serious side effects would have been sufficient to justify withholding the vaccine from the under 65s even if all the over 65s had already been vaccinated, he said it would have.
