TGA SAYS WOMANS DEATH LIKLEY LINKED TO ASTRAZENECA VACCINE.
The Therapeutic Goods and Administration says it very likely a woman who died yesterday from blood clots is linked to the AstraZeneca Vaccine.
The 48-year-old woman was vaccinated last Friday and developed clots with 24 hours of receiving the vaccine.
It’s been widely the reported the woman has a history of diabetes, but it’s unclear if any underlying conditions played a role in her adverse reaction to the Vaccine.
The Doctor who administered the vaccine made the assessment that the benefit of the vaccine outweighed the risk of not having the vaccine.
There have three reports of the rare blood clot reaction in Australia from around 700,000 vaccines administrated in Australia.
Australia has recommended that people over the age of 50 receive the Astrazeneca vaccine and the Pfizer vaccine for those under 50.
The above is just a recommendation and it’s always best to consult your local GP for what is best for you.
