Vaxxed woman in Cyprus dies from blood clot

Vaxxed woman in Cyprus dies from blood clot”

While the investigation is still ongoing, Dr. Yaffe said the man had vaccine induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia or VITT at the time of his death - the rare blood clots associated with the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Speaking with CP24 on Tuesday afternoon, Jones said that the province does have "sufficient supply" to administer second doses to the entire cohort but will be distributing the vaccine to fewer pharmacies than it did during March's pilot project as part of a "cluster" approach.

Associate Medical Officer of Health Dr. Barbara Yaffe says the man in his 40s received a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine at the end of April.

The province is now reporting 16 cases of thrombotic thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), of which, 13 meet the criteria for VITT.

The AstraZeneca vaccine booking for adults aged 18 and above was made available via https://vaksincovid.gov.my for residents in Johor, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Sarawak and Selangor on a first-come, first-served basis.

Early data from the United Kingdom reached similar conclusions, suggesting the risk of developing VITT after second doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine is likely lower than after the first doses. The province now has more than 300,000 doses in stock.

Though the recommended interval between shots is at least 12 weeks, the second injection is being offered to that group after 10 weeks in order to make use of the 45,000 doses nearing expiration.

South Sudan says it will return the doses after concluding it can not administer the jabs before they expire, a health ministry official told AFP on Tuesday.

He says if you don't get your second shot early, there's no reason to panic.

She said that rather than calling pharmacies to book an appointment themselves, those eligible for a second dose should wait to be contacted in the coming days.

CS Kagwe said it was crunch time but asked Kenyans yet to receive their second shots not to panic, saying the first dose offers up to 70 per cent protection.

"One of the real difficulties they've had is constant changes in the rollout programme that makes it hard for them, particularly with regards to the AstraZeneca vaccine because we know that is the one that's been most variable in terms of delivery".

"I understand there's a bit of confusion there", Williams said.

"I want to take this opportunity to reiterate that those who received AstraZeneca vaccine should feel very confident in their decision", she said.

Another 10,000 doses of AstraZeneca expire next month, and the province now has more than 300,000 doses in stock.

Some countries have restricted or dropped AstraZeneca shots from national vaccine campaigns over very rare blood clots, though the EMA says the benefits outweigh the risks.
