What started out as a joke on TikTok, with people making fun of COVID-19 vaccine side effects, has turned out to be a sad reality. There have been reports of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine having severe side effects. These include blood clots and increasing brain hemorrhages.
The company, AstraZeneca, published a report in which it states that, the vaccine is safe to use. It is working alongside other European Health bodies to investigate the claims made against the vaccine. The results will be published and made public.
There are 17 million people in the EU and UK who have received this vaccination. The number of reported cases with blood clots is relatively low. Kenya received this vaccine a couple of days ago. These vaccines have already started to be distributed among the counties.
Meanwhile the WHO are meeting today to discuss the vaccine. They are also looking into the AstraZeneca concerns that have been raised. Countries such as Italy, France and Germany have joined many other European and Asian countries in halting the use of the vaccine.
