  • Unusual blood clots should be listed as "very rare side effects" - but the "overall benefits" of the vaccine in preventing Covid-19 outweigh the risks.
  • Eight rare blood clots with low levels of blood platelets were recorded among over 7 million doses of the J&J vaccine administered in the US.
  • The statement by the EMA is similar to its conclusion for the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine - which NIAC decided to limit to those aged over 60.
