Astra Zeneca COVID-19 Vaccination Update

  • Sheffield and UK continues to use AZ vaccine as recommended by the European Medicines Agency and WHO.
  • Blood clots occur naturally and are fairly common.
  • The number of reported blood clots in over 11 million vaccinated in the UK is no higher than the wider population and there’s no evidence these are caused by the vaccine.
  • AstraZeneca reported that of 17m people vaccinated there were 15 incidents of DVT and 22 of pulmonary embolism, “much lower than would be expected to occur in the general population”.
  • This is also similar to Pfizer vaccines.
  • Our vaccine campaign must continue as vaccines save lives.
