Two suspected blood clots after vaccination in Finland – the use of AstraZeneca’s vaccine is temporarily suspended
The Finnish authorities have decided to take a break from vaccinations with AstraZeneca’s corona vaccine – just in case. The reason is that they still want to investigate the vaccine’s connection to unusual blood clots – sinus thrombosis.
Two suspected cases of blood clots after vaccinations have been discovered in Finland.
It has been established that young women have reacted to the vaccine and we do not know why, said Hanna Nohynek, vaccine specialist at the Institute for Health and Welfare, at the authorities’ press conference. It is mainly 20-50-year-old women who have been linked to the possible side effects.
The symptoms detected are very rare. At the moment it is not possible to say whether the disorders in the blood coagulation are related to the vaccination.
