The ratio of people who have suffered from blood clots after receiving the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is approximately the same as those who receive the AstraZeneca vaccine, according to a new study.
Oxford University researchers found that the number of people who receive blood clots after getting vaccinated is approximately the same for all three vaccines, with four in one million people experiencing cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) after getting the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, compared to five in one million people for the AstraZeneca vaccine.
The new study comes in the wake of AstraZeneca’s vaccine use being halted or limited in several countries due to concerns of blood clots that have recently been reported in patients getting vaccinated.
