Astrazeneca Stock – TGA and Greg Hunt tout AstraZeneca safety after clotting incident
The TGA and Federal government are urgently trying to reassure Australian’s about the safety of the AstraZeneca vaccine after a vaccine recipient developed a clotting disorder.
A 44-year-old Melbourne man was hospitalised with blood clots days after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine in a rare medical incident thought to be linked to the jab
Health Minister Greg Hunt said authorities have ensured the injection went through rigorous testing and the TGA has advised the rollout should continue.
Britain’s medicines regulator is also urging people to continue to take the AstraZeneca vaccine despite seven people in the UK dying from blood clots after receiving their doses.
They have argued the benefits of the vaccine far outweigh any risks and complications.
