2,800 side-effect reports made about AZ vaccine
Around 2,800 reports of suspected side-effects associated with the AstraZeneca vaccine have been made in Ireland, the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA) has said.
According to the HPRA, this is in the context of over 204,000 doses.
Of the 2,800 reports, 18 events are related to blood clots. However, none of these are of the nature of the very rare blood clots of concern, which led to a number of countries, including Ireland, temporarily halting the use of the vaccine recently.
