Patuloy na naniniwala ang World Health Organization (WHO) na mas maraming benepisyo ang makukuha mula sa AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine kumpara sa mga side-effects nito, pahayag ni WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus sa isang news briefing sa Geneva noong Biyernes.

“Even as we work to expand access to vaccines, we’re continuing to keep a close eye on vaccine safety,” ani Tedros.

Iginiit nitong ang lahat ng bakuna at gamot ay mayroong risk ng side effects.

Aniya, “In this case, the risks of severe disease and death from Covid-19 are many times higher than the very small risks related to the vaccine.”

Kamakailan ay inanunsyo ng European at British medicines regulators ang “possible link” aniya sa pagitan ng AstraZeneca vaccine at rare cases ng blood clots, kung saan sinabi ng UK na mag-aalok ito ng alternatibong bakuna para sa mga edad 30 pababa.

Noong Miyerkules, naglabas naman ng pahayag ang WHO na “a causal relationship between the vaccine and the occurrence of blood clots with low platelets is considered plausible but is not confirmed.”

Muli itong idiniin ni Tedros noong Biyernes.

Aniya, “The Covid-19 subcommittee of the WHO Global Advisory Committee on vaccine safety has reviewed available information from Europe and other regions and has said that a causal relationship between the vaccine and the occurrence of blood clots with low platelets is plausible, but more investigation is required.”

“WHO, EMA and MHRA continue to recommend that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risk of this very rare side effect,” dagdag pa nito.
