“The Danish Medicines Agency would like to clarify information about the Danish death after vaccination with AstraZeneca vaccine. It is an unusual picture of the disease around the death that made the Danish Medicines Agency react. A similar disease picture was also found by the Danish Medicines Agency in a few other reports in the European adverse reaction database. Most recently, Norway on Saturday described suspected side effects which are similar in the disease picture.

The Danish woman had an unusual clinical picture with a low number of platelets, blood clots in small and large vessels and bleeding, says unit manager Tanja Erichsen. This caused the professional experts in the Danish Medicines Agency to react.

The disease picture is highly unusual and is currently being thoroughly investigated by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the other European Medicines Agency.”
