Concerned about the latest AstraZeneca news? These 3 graphics help you make sense of the risk – “Two people in Australia have died from thrombosis with thrombocytopenia after 3.8 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine delivered”.
[Preprint] Meta-analysis of risk of vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia following ChAdOx1-S recombinant vaccine – Overall risk is 1 in 139,000; for age 65 and over, about 1 in 1,000,000; for age under 55, between 1 in 20,000 to 60,000.
Cohort study: Arterial events, venous thromboembolism, thrombocytopenia, and bleeding after vaccination with Oxford-AstraZeneca ChAdOx1-S. 11 excess venous thromboembolic events per 100 000 vaccinations; 2.5 excess cerebral venous thrombosis per 100 000 vaccinations.
Case series of 12 patients with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis with thrombocytopenia after Ad26.COV2.S vaccination – all women younger than 60 years, with symptoms from 6 to 15 days after vaccination
Editorial: SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine–Induced Immune Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia – “The very low prevalence of this complication of vaccination, however severe, relative to the benefits of preventing Covid-19 must be emphasized”
