British epidemiologist Neil Ferguson said that the youth group faces the risk of blood clots after receiving the “AstraZeneca” vaccine against the Corona virus.
The scientist who received the “Oxford” vaccine pointed out that the risk of developing unusual blood clots appears to be related to age, as young people are likely to be affected by them, indicating that “with regard to the currently available data, there is increasing evidence that there is a risk of blood clots specifically linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine. “.
He added, “It seems that the risk is related to age and may be related to sex, but the data is weaker on this matter. Therefore, the older you get, the less risk.”
It is reported that the United Kingdom Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said that there is currently no evidence indicating a causal relationship between blood clots and the “AstraZeneca” vaccine and that the benefits of the vaccine in preventing the Corona virus outweigh any risks.
Canada, Germany and the Netherlands have suspended the use of the “AstraZeneca” vaccine to vaccinate people under 60 years of age due to fears of rare blood clots.
