AstraZeneca admits that its Covid vaccine can cause side effects such as thrombosis in "very rare cases"

MADRID, 2 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -

AstraZeneca has admitted for the first time that its Covid 19 vaccine can cause side effects such as thrombosis in "very rare cases", in a legal document presented to the UK High Court in February, according to The Telegraph newspaper.

This statement by the pharmaceutical company occurs within the framework of a judicial process by the English Supreme Court, which has an open class action lawsuit in which 51 cases of victims and relatives claim up to 100 million pounds from AstraZeneca for damages and prejudices for the side effects of the vaccine.

One of the effects is thrombosis syndrome with thrombocytopenia, which is a clot in the blood vessels of the brain, legs or elsewhere in the body.

AstraZeneca now rejects the claims contained in the complaints but accepts, however, that its doses "may, in very rare cases, cause thrombosis." Specifically, the complainants' lawyers argue that the vaccine, developed together with the University of Oxford, "has had a devastating effect on a small number of families."

One of the first cases to be prosecuted was that of Jaime Scott, who has been left with a permanent brain injury after suffering a clot and hemorrhage in the brain that prevented him from working after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine in April 2021.

In May 2023, AstraZeneca, also through a judicial response, responded that it did not accept the thesis that Scott's case had been caused by its vaccine.
