  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Blood clot risk after Oxford-AZ jab ‘extremely small’, says MHRA | Covid-19” – below is their description.

    There is an “extremely small risk” of people suffering blood clots after having the AstraZeneca jab and the benefits outweigh the risk for most people, regulators have said.

    Dr June Raine, chief executive of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), said: “Our position remains that the benefits of the Covid-19 vaccine AstraZeneca against Covid-19, with its associated risk of hospitalisation and death, continues to outweigh the risks for the vast majority of people.

    “The balance of benefits and risks is very favourable for older people but is more finely balanced for younger people and we advise that this evolving evidence should be taken into account when considering the use of the vaccine, as JVCI has done.”
