This morning.

Via The Guardian:

Italy, Spain and Belgium have joined other European countries in restricting or recommending the use of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine in older age groups as the EU struggles to agree common guidelines to counter expected public hesitancy.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) on Wednesday found a possible link between the vaccine and very rare cases of blood clots, although it said its benefits far outweighed the risks and did not announce any restrictions.

Meanwhile…

The HSE is, for now, continuing with its planned rollout of AstraZeneca vaccines to people with underlying health conditions that put them at very high risk from Covid-19.

Any change in guidance would create further obstacles in the State’s protracted vaccine programme given that the AstraZeneca shot accounts for just over 20 per cent of the planned vaccine supplies to the State during the months of April, May and June.

    The EMA are obviously ratlickers then?

    By accepting ‘offered’ vaccines, is one therefore relinquishing the right to recourse through legal channels?

    This anti AstraZeneca thing is all about politics/power and money. Kicking Britain over Brexit. That’s why it’s being attacked. A few blood clots out of millions of jabs is not a reason for a ban. Keep this in mind. What matters to these people in charge is politics/power and money…..your health comes second. Just mentioning that in case there’s issues with these vaccines six months or years down the line. Money and politics/power come first.
