WHO Reviewing Data, Recommends AstraZeneca Covid Jabs Continue

Several countries have reported feared links between the vaccine and blood clots.

Geneva, Switzerland:

The World Health Organization said Wednesday its experts were still reviewing safety data on the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine following concerns around blood clots but recommended that vaccination programmes continue.

“The WHO Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety is carefully assessing the latest available safety data,” the UN health agency said in a statement.

“At this time, WHO considers that the benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine outweigh its risks and recommends that vaccinations continue.”
