By Aaron Humes: A critical issue in the backlash against Oxford-AstraZeneca is adverse events linked to the vaccine, including the development of blood clots.

On average, side effects from the vaccine lasts 1-2 days according to Dr. Natalia Largaespada Beer, Technical Advisor for Maternal and Child Health in the Ministry of Health and Wellness and point person on the vaccination campaign, but individuals are of course advised to go immediately to the nearest health center if any more or worse symptoms are discovered.

But Dr. Beer noted that the Ministry’s latest figures on the percentage of persons showing reaction to COVID-19 vaccines were three percent. Even if that figure is doubled for underreporting, that would only be six percent of all persons vaccinated, and the symptoms were mostly mild.

On the blood clot issue, Dr. Beer shared that she was personally diagnosed with deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and is therefore susceptible to blood clots, plus being obese – yet she is fully vaccinated and had mild symptoms.

According to the Ministry’s figures, 20 persons died of pulmonary embolism (a blood clot to the lungs) in 2020, when there were no vaccines. In the first quarter of 2021, four persons died of pulmonary embolism, of which one succumbed after the vaccines arrived, and that person was not vaccinated. Compare that to Jamaica, which in November alone reported 23 cases of ESAVI (Events Supposedly Attributed to Vaccination or Immunization).

Of the cases of deaths supposedly attributed to the vaccine, Dr. Beer said, “…once the specialist assessed the patient, we find that the patient had risk factors before receiving the vaccine, or they had a chronic illness that got complicated, coincidentally, after getting the vaccine.”

Asked whether the Ministry is conveniently turning a blind eye to such reports, Dr. Beer acknowledged that while individuals are recommended to call the Ministry if they suffer such issues when they are jabbed, it can do a better job of informing the public that the AstraZeneca vaccine is safe – certainly safer than getting COVID-19, which also has in some cases caused the development of blood clots in patients.

The value of the vaccines that would be lost is roughly $472,000 although the current stock is from a donation.
