COVID-19 Vaccination and Blood Clotting

Posted on May 21st, 2021

COVID-19 Vaccination and Blood Clotting

What Is The Concern?

Recently there have been reports of a very rare condition involving blood clots and unusual bleeding after vaccination. This is being carefully reviewed but the risk factors for this condition are not yet clear.

Although this condition remains extremely rare there appears to be a higher risk in people who have had the first dose of the AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccine. Around 4 people develop this condition for every million doses of AZ vaccine doses given.

This is seen slightly more often in younger people and tends to occur between 4 days and 2 weeks following vaccination.

This condition can also occur naturally, and clotting problems are a common complication of COVID-19 infection. An increased risk has not yet been seen after other COVID-19 vaccines but is being carefully monitored.

Please see useful information below with regards to the benefits and risks of the vaccination and visit: www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-and-blood-clotting for further information.
