Ejes Gist NewsOnline Nigeria understands COVID-19 to be a severe acute respiratory tract infection. coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine (ChAdOx1-S) were invented to prevent COVID-19.
According to report, the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine is made from a weakened version of a common cold virus (known as an adenovirus) from chimpanzees. It has been modified to look more like coronavirus – although it can’t cause illness.
One single dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine is highly protective and also helps reduce the risk of illness.
Once injected, it teaches the body’s immune system how to combat the actual virus.
Countries across Europe are suspending the rollout of the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab… Why?
According to reports, some countries across Europe are suspending — some fully, some partially — the rollout of the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab after reports of blood clotting after vaccination.
There have been several deaths from clotting, but health authorities have stressed there’s no indication of a link to vaccination.
The countries above have all suspended the rollout of at least some Oxford/AstraZeneca batches as a precautionary measure.
Thing you should know about the batch — ABV5300
ABV5300 was distributed to 17 European countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, France, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, and Sweden) and contains one million doses in total.
While Italy has yet to receive that batch, it announced this week that it is halting the distribution of a different batch — ABV2856 — as a precaution following “some serious, adverse events.”
According to the European Medicines Agency, there have been 30 reported cases of blood clotting-related incidents out of nearly five million people who have received the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine in Europe, excluding the United Kingdom, as of March 10.
The figures are “no higher than that seen in the general population,” according to the regulator, and there’s no evidence that the vaccine is to blame.
‘Blood clots’ are on the rise.
Denmark and Norway were among the countries that put the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine on hold temporarily as a precaution.
It was prompted by reports of people developing blood clots and dying as a result of vaccination.
This week, Austria halted the use of a specific batch of the drug after a woman died 10 days after receiving the vaccine due to “severe blood coagulation problems.”
The Austrian doses were part of a one-million-dose batch labelled ABV5300 that was sent to 17 European countries.
Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Luxembourg have also discontinued the use of doses from that batch.
Different batches of the vaccine have been suspended in Italy and Austria.
