Britain Coronavirus recommendations vaccine Britain

Brits in their 30s could be asked to take non-AstraZeneca jab over blood clot fears

Brits in their thirties could be urged to take an alternative coronavirus jab to AstraZeneca following fears it could be linked to blood clots.

Members of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) have said the recommendation may be made before the UK's vaccine programme is rolled out to the under 40s.

The Government’s independent scientific advisers said a new risk/benefit assessment of the vaccine in different age brackets will be made before the rollout begins.

Figures have revealed that blood clots are most likely to affect those in their 30s after they have had the jab. There have been 79 cases in the UK and 19 deaths, 13 of which were women according to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
