AstraZeneca admits COVID-19 vaccine can cause rare side effects

JNS: AstraZeneca has admitted in court documents that its COVID-19 vaccine, developed with the University of Oxford, can lead to a rare side effect known as thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), as reported by a British newspaper.

This admission comes in the midst of a class-action lawsuit alleging numerous deaths and injuries, with claimants and their families seeking up to £100 million in damages, according to the UNI news agency.

The lawsuit was initiated by Jamie Scott, a father of two, who suffered a permanent brain injury after developing a blood clot and brain hemorrhage following his vaccination in April 2021, as reported by Telegraph UK.

The legal battle has intensified, with 51 cases now filed in the High Court, highlighting the devastating impact of TTS on individuals and families.

Kate Scott, Jamie Scott’s wife, stated to the Telegraph via UNI, “The medical world has acknowledged for a long time that VITT was caused by the vaccine. It’s only AstraZeneca who have questioned whether Jamie’s condition was caused by the jab.”

“It’s taken three years for this admission to come. It’s progress, but we would like to see more from them and the Government. It’s time for things to move more quickly.

“I hope their admission means we will be able to sort this out sooner rather than later. We need an apology, fair compensation for our family and other families who have been affected. We have the truth on our side, and we are not going to give up.”

AstraZeneca had previously acknowledged a link between the COVID-19 vaccine and vaccine-induced immune thrombocytopenia and thrombosis (VITT) in March 2021, shortly after the vaccine rollout commenced.

This development raises concerns about vaccine safety and emphasizes the challenge of balancing public health concerns with potential vaccination risks.

Thrombocytopenia is a condition characterized by a low blood platelet count, according to the Mayo Clinic website. Platelets are colorless blood cells that aid in blood clotting by clumping and forming plugs in blood vessel injuries.
