The World Health Organisation (WHO) said there is no evidence that any health incidents were caused by the AstraZeneca vaccine.
WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier said, “as soon as WHO has gained a full understanding of these events, the findings and any unlikely changes to current recommendations will be immediately communicated to the public.
“As of today, there is no evidence that the incidents are caused by the vaccine and it is important that vaccination campaigns continue so that we can save lives and stem severe disease from the virus,” he added.
The statement comes after the head of the Oxford University vaccine group sought to reassure the public over its Covid-19 vaccine after several countries temporarily suspended its use.
Professor Andrew Pollard said that while it was right that regulators investigated reports of blood clots in people who have had the vaccine, data from millions of people was “very reassuring” that there was no link.
