AZ is still in trail in USA.
The vaccine was well tolerated, and the independent data safety monitoring board (DSMB) identified no safety concerns related to the vaccine. The DSMB conducted a specific review of thrombotic events, as well as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) with the assistance of an independent neurologist. The DSMB found no increased risk of thrombosis or events characterised by thrombosis among the 21,583 participants receiving at least one dose of the vaccine. The specific search for CVST found no events in this trial.
Ann Falsey, Professor of Medicine, University of Rochester School of Medicine, US, and co-lead Principal Investigator for the trial, said: “These findings reconfirm previous results observed in AZD1222 trials across all adult populations but it’s exciting to see similar efficacy results in people over 65 for the first time. This analysis validates the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine as a much-needed additional vaccination option, offering confidence that adults of all ages can benefit from protection against the virus.”
ALSO : In the 513 284 patients with a covid-19 diagnosis the incidence of cerebral venous thrombosis was 39.0 per million people (95% confidence interval 25.2 to 60.2 million), and in the 489 871 patients who had received covid-19 vaccination the incidence was 4.1 per million (1.1 to 14.9 million) (adjusted relative risk 6.36, P<0.001). Vaccinated patients received an mRNA vaccine, either the Pfizer-BioNTech one or Moderna’s.
None of the patients received the AstraZeneca-University of Oxford vaccine, which has been linked to cases of rare cerebral blood clots, causing some governments and regulators to restrict its use,2 because that vaccine has not yet been authorised for use in the US.
The point is having covid 19 can also cause thrombosis and in usa pfizer is also responsbile for blood clots.
However, the risk of a normal blood clot before all this was higher.
with millions having had the vaccine the risk is minimal but the chance of dying from covid was way more. AZ decided it was better to offer younger under 45 other vaccine but doesnt mean they wont have clots. I am assuming that under 45 more people are on the pill and under 50 on HRT which increased blood clots too.
As to Ileostomy gosh some years back our best friend in the forces had to have one temporary when he had bowel cancer. I do know it was removed and he has had no issues over the years afterwards (touch wood).
It must have been very scary for you, but are you saying having had the AZ it was proven the clot was down to the vaccine, or was it just an assumption?
I hope you continue to recover. AZ has not been passed by USA as they have their own vaccinations in production, and more pending. But the trails for the vaccine have shown very good results and the thrombo is no higher then pfizer. If one goes on the american equivelent to our database where you report side effects of drugs it is quite apparant pfizer has had similar issues.
also in norway they are directly saying the pfizer caused the death of 10 patients in a care home it has now been proven, but that was out of 100, and all were frail.
xxxx I have had my second vaccine of AZ no issues. millions the same. xxx
