  • Global News published this video item, entitled “Health Canada adds warning label to Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine” – below is their description.

    There has been concern and confusion over the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine including a small number of reports in Europe of extremely rare blood clots. There have not been any reports of blood clots in this country though Health Canada has added a warning of a potential side effect.

    AstraZeneca said its COVID-19 vaccine was 76% effective at preventing symptomatic illness in a new analysis of its major U.S. trial — a tad lower than the level announced earlier this week in a report that was criticized for using outdated information.

    U.S. health officials had publicly rebuked the drugmaker for not using the most up-to-date information when it published an interim analysis on Monday that said the vaccine was 79% effective.
