    Since the start of the vaccination, there have been “12 cases, including four deaths in total” of rare thromboses which have occurred in France, said the ANSM on Friday.

    These are “thromboses of the large veins atypical by their location (mainly cerebral, but also digestive), which may be associated with thrombocytopenia (blood platelet deficiency) or coagulation disorders”.

    The health agency, which had reported this risk a week ago, “confirms again the very rare occurrence of this thrombotic risk” in people vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine.

    But it nevertheless recalled that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) confirmed the “positive” benefit/risk balance of vaccination with AstraZeneca in the prevention of Covid-19.

    These cases occurred within a median of nine days after vaccination, mainly in women, with no specific common history identified (nine people under 55, three patients over 55).

    The ANSM recommended that people who had received this vaccine consult a doctor immediately, in the event of symptoms that persist beyond three days, such as “shortness of breath, chest pain, swelling of the legs, abdominal pain, headaches. severe headache, blurred vision, or bruising far from the injection site”.

    The family of a 38-year-old woman, who died of thrombosis after receiving a first dose of the vaccine, filed a complaint against X with the Toulouse prosecutor’s office on Friday, with the aim of “obtaining an investigation,” their lawyer told AFP.

    The previous report revealed nine such cases including two deaths.

    A group of experts has been assembled by the European Agency to assess the mechanism of action, any underlying risk factors and any additional data to explain such cases. Their observations will be discussed during the European pharmacovigilance committee next week.

      Astra Zeneca – Europe’s pharma vaccine for use – seems to be killing and injuring many Europeans. There was a temporary halt on the use of this particular vaccine because of blood clots, but it has resumed distribution since it was now deemed safe? This drug is very experimental without proper lab testing, and people are being sold a bad bill of goods that the vaccine is safe. FDA in the US was handicapped from more in depth testing of the vaccine when the federal government exercised an “Emergency use” injunction to jump start its distribution which is totally unethical, immoral and quite possibly illegal. American people as well as people from around the world are just not being told the real facts about the terrible side effects of this artificial implant! Wake up world before it is too late!
