Vaccinations with AstraZeneca will continue as normal: Greek National Immunisation Committee:


At a special meeting of Immunisation National Committee examined the issue raised by isolated cases of thromboembolic in people who received the AstraZeneca vaccine.

According to the relevant Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC) of the European Medicines Agency, to date there is no evidence that these episodes are related to vaccine.

The Commission is examining all cases of thromboembolic events reported in European Union countries and noted that the number of people vaccinated is not higher than expected in the general population.

It is emphasised that thromboembolic cases are not uncommon.

Therefore, during the period when a large number of vaccines are given, a time coincidence with the occurrence of such episodes is expected to occur.

According to the United Kingdom’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, in more than 11 million vaccinations with the AstraZeneca vaccine, the number of thromboembolic cases does not exceed the normal number

  1. These cases of emboli are happening all over the globe. If someone wishes to take a vaccine the “safest” is unquestionably Sinovac (which is a real vaccine as opposed to Astrazenika which is experimental gene-therapy), Sinopharm, and then the Sputnik. Using such a harmful agent proves that this is not about health but money and power.
