Cases of blood clots after a vaccine dose are "very rare."
Despite reports of AstraZeneca-linked blood clots, Health Canada agrees with European officials who said that the vaccine is still safe to use.
The European Medicines Agency's preliminary review of reports of blood clots in people who had received an AstraZeneca vaccine dose confirmed that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risk of side effects.
The review said the vaccine isn't associated with an increase in the overall risk of blood clots and there's no evidence that specific batches have problems.
It also mentioned that AstraZeneca vaccine doses might be associated with cases of blood clots but it's "very rare."
