    The Italian government said on Friday it was restricting the use of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine to people over the age of 60, after a teenager who had received the shot died from a rare form of blood clotting. Camilla Canepa died on Thursday aged 18 after being given the vaccine on May 25, triggering a media and political outcry over the Anglo-Swedish company's shot being used for adults of all ages despite previously-raised medical concerns. "AstraZeneca will only be used for people over 60," the country's special COVID commissioner Francesco Figliuolo told reporters. People under the age of 60...

    Researchers studying records of 1.7 million adults who received the AstraZeneca AZN 2.29% PLC Covid-19 vaccine in Scotland found a small increased risk of bleeding conditions also sometimes associated with several vaccines routinely given to children, and usually treatable.The blood disorders are different from a very rare but sometimes deadly blood-clotting condition that—coupled with low platelet levels—researchers in Europe have already linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine. That possible side effect has been the focus of regulatory and government scrutiny in recent months.In the new paper, published Wednesday in the journal Nature Medicine, researchers from the U.K. and New Zealand said...

    A coroner in the United Kingdom will consider whether complications caused by the AstraZeneca vaccine were a factor in the death of BBC presenter Lisa Shaw. Ms Shaw, 44, was a well known presenter in northeast England, where she worked for BBC Radio Newcastle. She died last Friday in hospital, where she was being treated for blood clots. In a statement, Ms Shaw’s family said she developed “severe” headaches a week after having the Covid-19 vaccine and became “seriously ill” a few days later.

    An award-winning BBC radio presenter died in hospital after suffering blood clots after she received the AstraZeneca vaccine, her family have revealed. Lisa Shaw, who worked for BBC Newcastle, developed 'severe' headaches a week after having the jab and fell seriously ill a few days later, relatives said in a statement. Ms Shaw, 44, died at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, on Friday afternoon having been treated in intensive care for blood clots and bleeding. A fact-of-death certificate lists the vaccine as one of the possible factors, but document does not determine a cause of death. It is expected that...

    A coroner will consider if the cause of BBC presenter Lisa Shaw's death might have been complicated by her having had the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine. Her family said the 44-year-old was treated for blood clots days after her first jab. She died on Friday. An interim fact-of-death certificate lists the vaccine as one of the possible factors being considered. The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said vaccine benefits exceed risks for most people. The BBC has seen the interim fact-of-death certificate issued by Newcastle's senior coroner Karen Dilks.
  • Cause of blood clots linked to AstraZeneca and J&J Covid vaccines ‘SOLVED’ and scientists claim they know how to fix it

    BOFFINS claim to have cracked the cause of rare blood clots linked to Covid jabs and say they know how to solve it. They say the phenomenon is caused by “floating mutant proteins” which can occur when a vaccine sends the spike protein of the Sars-Cov-2 virus into the wrong part of a cell. Lead scientist Rolf Marschalek said US drugs firm Johnson & Johnson has already been in touch to ask about his team's research at the Goethe University in Frankfurt. But he said he had not yet discussed its findings with AstraZeneca, manufacturer of the Oxford vaccine. He...

    EU regulators Friday called on Pfizer and Moderna to provide additional data related to the companies’ COVID vaccines and a potential link to heart inflammation, after the agency completed a safety review of all four COVID vaccines authorized for emergency use in the EU. The European Medicines Agency’s safety committee, (PRAC), also asked AstraZeneca for data related to reports of Guillain–Barré syndrome in people who received the AstraZeneca vaccine, and they recommended Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson (J&J) update their labels with side effect warnings. In a report issued May 7, PRAC disclosed its members were aware of cases of...

    Ontario will no longer give the AstraZeneca-Oxford COVID-19 vaccine as a first dose due to the risk of rare blood clots. Dr. David Williams, chief medical officer of health, said on Tuesday that the province made the decision due to an increase in cases of a rare blood clotting syndrome known as Vaccine-Induced Immune Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine. "Effective today, Ontario will be pausing the rollout and administration of first doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine at this time," Williams told reporters on Tuesday. Williams said the decision was made out of an abundance of caution. The...

    So far two countries have exited the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic using U.S.-made vaccines (Israel and the United States), while two other countries have seen infection rates rising despite heavy use of Chinese-made vaccines (Chile and Seychelles).Success of U.S. vaccinesIsrael achieved herd immunity by vaccinating almost 60% of its population using the U.S.-made Pfizer vaccine. According to a chart published by Worldometer, the COVID death rate has fallen to almost zero in Israel.Similarly, the United States exited the pandemic the week of March 20, when just 25% had been vaccinated, compared to 45% today.

    Brookings ^ | Friday, April 30, 2021 | Thomas Wright
    The Biden administration’s announcement on Monday that it would soon export tens of millions of doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine completed a dramatic policy U-turn. It came after a tumultuous week in which the administration’s carefully constructed pandemic-diplomacy plan fell apart as the COVID-19 crisis in India worsened. The Biden administration needs to learn from this misstep and demonstrate a more agile approach in managing the pandemic globally and in navigating the domestic politics of foreign policy.President Joe Biden’s foreign-policy team supports India and is unambiguously internationalist in its instincts, especially on matters of public health. It was horrified by...

    To the Editor: I read with interest “Vaccines May Affect Women Differently” (news article, April 18). It fails to address what I consider some other important questions concerning weight, dosage and side effects. For example, does one size fit all? With regard to Covid vaccines, everyone gets the same dose, whether the patient is a 5-foot-2 woman weighing 105 pounds or a 6-foot-4 man weighing 210 pounds. And some individuals are more sensitive to medications than others, and are more likely to suffer side effects (including tinnitus, which I experienced). I believe in vaccines, and we all hope they are...

Some of the doses have been distributed to the public in both countries, the officials said.
