British news today may be dominated by two issues-the safety of the AstraZeneca shooting and the government’s plan for the so-called “vaccine passport” or “vaccine certification”. Monday’s government review seemed to rule out prohibiting private companies from using the latter because “this is an unreasonable interference in how companies choose to make their premises safe”.
The hotel industry in the UK expressed strong opposition to this, and the Liverpool Comedy Club has withdrawn from the planned pilot activities after being abused by the issue.
Regarding the safety of the AstraZeneca shooting incident, the radio wave has been discussed this morning. The former CEO of the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said he had “no reservations”
Sir Kent Woods Tell LBC Radio: “The risk of Covid is much higher. It is difficult to determine whether there is a causal relationship between the vaccine and these thrombotic events (ie coagulation events), even in young people, because this happens in the background. A coagulation-like event anyway. This is not an unknown event.”
“The Covid itself-the infection itself-is known to be associated with a significant increase in the risk of various types of blood clots. We can say that if there is a connection, it is a very, very rare connection, which is why I don’t have to worry about my relatives The fact that I was vaccinated against AstraZeneca in my 40s.”
PA Media also reported Adam FinnProfessor of Pediatrics at the University of Bristol, who is also a member of the Joint Committee on Vaccines and Immunization (JCVI), said that people’s concerns about the Oxford/AstraZeneca probation are “very serious” and have been investigated “very thoroughly”.
He told BBC Radio 4’s Today program: “What’s different is that we have been observing thrombosis, including cerebral venous thrombosis, but usually we don’t think they are related to low platelet count-this is a form of blood clotting. Small blood cells, which makes them stand out and makes us think it’s different from the norm.”
Finn said this means they want to understand why this is caused and whether it is related to the vaccine. More than 18 million people received stabbings, and a total of 30 such blood clot incidents occurred, including 7 deaths. He said this “may” affect the launch of the vaccine.
He said: “The data quoted is as of March 24. I think we will soon hear what happened after the number of cases, but we can expect that there will be more in the transition period.”
Finn emphasized that the risk of Covid-19 is greater for the elderly, so it may be more beneficial for them to get vaccinated. He added: “If this is causal, what we urgently need to understand is whether the risk-return ratio can be maintained when you are young.
