Problem: Question on AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, Both vaccines make blood clots


Very few of the vaccines given to millions of vaccines given the Oxford-AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines under control to control the epidemic but have caused serious blood clots are under suspicion. Actually, both vaccines are based on the same technology.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends Johnson & Johnson briefly ban the use of the anti-corona vaccine. The FDA has taken this step after the use of this vaccine revealed six cases of blood clotting. Let us know that even after the use of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine Kovishield, there have been cases of abnormal blood clots.

The European Medical Agency (EMA) said last week that abnormal blood clots should be listed as a very rare side effect of the AstraZeneca vaccine, although they also said the overall benefits of this vaccine in preventing Kovid-19 if This has reduced the risk of corona infection.

Blood clots form in the nerves of the brain — called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST). In addition, clots form in the lower abdomen and arteries. In both parts of the body where they appear, they occur abnormally because they are accompanied by low levels of blood platelets, which help the blood to form clots.

Paradoxically, it may mean that the patient may experience bleeding as well as blood clots. According to the EMA, out of 3.4 million (34 million) AstraZeneca injections made in the European Economic Area (European Union, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein) and the UK, as of April 4, there were just 222 cases of abnormal thrombosis and 18 deaths by 22 March. Occurred. Most of the recorded cases of this type occurred in women under 60 years of age within two weeks of vaccination.

On the other hand, in the US, where more than 6.8 million (6.8 million) one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccines have been administered, the United States has investigated Johnson & Johnson's one-dose Kovid- for investigating reports of blood clots. A temporary ban on vaccination of 19 is recommended. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said in a joint statement on Tuesday that they reported cases of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis in six women a few days after vaccination. Reports of their blood clots freezing and platelet counts are being investigated. The statement said that more than 68 lakh doses of this vaccine have been given in the US, most of which have not seen any side effects.

In a joint statement, they are investigating a case of blood clotting in six women between the ages of 18 and 48 years after vaccination. A case is more serious in this.
