Astrazeneca, England, London, UK, Vaccine, Vaccine Deaths, Vaccine Injured

The UK Parliament’s Pandemic Response and Recovery Group (APPG) have called for an investigation into Britain’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) today.

In a stinging letter to the Parliament’s Health and Social Care Committee, the APPG have cited concerns that the MHRA failed to flag Covid vaccine side effects, particularly with regard to the safety of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, which was widely used in Britain earlier in the pandemic.

In response to reports of deaths following the AstraZeneca vaccine, when it was found to cause the autoimmune condition Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopaenia (VITT) ..


Denmark, and other European countries, suspended the [AstraZeneca] vaccine immediately on 11 March 2021, pending further investigation and took the necessary action to protect the public promptly.

By contrast, the MHRA said it could see no evidence of a link, despite a signal from Yellow Card reports as early as 7 February, only published safety advice on 7 April, by which time, 24 million people had been vaccinated in the UK without MHRA’s pharmacovigilance system detecting a problem.

Two months later, 7 May, the MHRA withdrew AZ for under 40s, but only after further needless deaths, such as that of BBC radio reporter Lisa Shaw who received her first dose of the AZ vaccine on 29 April.
