EU regulator advices against second AstraZeneca shot in those with blood clots

May 21 (Reuters) - Europe’s drug regulator said on Friday AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine must not be given to anyone who has had blood clots with low blood platelets after receiving the shot, and that patients must be monitored for signs within three weeks of vaccination.

The recommendations were provided by the European Medicines Agency as part of an ongoing review of rare, but severe blood clots that have been possibly linked to inoculation after the vaccine and also J&J’s coronavirus vaccine.
