London (AFP) – A new study, published in the journal BMJ, was the first to compare thrombocytopenia rates between adenovirus and mRNA vaccines — such as Pfizer — across multiple countries. It has found that AstraZeneca’s Covid vaccine is linked to a 30-percent higher risk of getting a very rare blood clotting condition compared to the Pfizer jab. Several countries have already altered their advice after previous research indicated that – in a tiny number of cases – thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) can be a possible side effect of Covid vaccines that use an adenovirus vector, or “engineered” virus, such as those from AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson.
