Germany’s standing vaccination commission (Stiko) has recommended that no-one aged under 60 should be given Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccines having previously recommended not giving it to over 65s. It’s not all of Germany but some states and regions.
“Berlin’s state hospital groups Charite and Vivantes have stopped giving women under 55 shots of AstraZeneca’s Covid vaccine, a spokeswomen for the hospitals confirmed.
The moves follow reports of rare but serious blood clots, bleeding and in some cases death after vaccination, mainly in young women.”
Canada has also suspended AZ vaccines to under 55yo. Link.
“She said most of the patients in Europe who developed a rare blood clot after vaccination with AstraZeneca were women under age 55, and the fatality rate among those who develop clots is as high as 40%.”
I am thinking that perhaps the AZ vaccine might have some adverse effects on women taking the pill, other hormonal contraceptive or hormone replacement therapy or possibly pregnancy related?
