(ansa) – perugia, 07 apr – the astrazeneca vaccine is “safe in general terms and able to offer excellent protection from covid“. He emphasized professor paolo gresele, ordinary of internal medicine of the university of perugia and president of the Italian society for the study of hemostasis and thrombosis. Which is also part of the narrow working group of experts for assessing risks from vaccines.
Responding to the anxiety, Greek professor recalled that “the risk of adverse events exists for all drugs”. For astrazeneca these adverse events seem to be in no way more frequent than the other vaccines. However, an important doubt is linked to a specific, rare but serious manifestation, such as cerebral or visceral venous thrombosis, associated with pyastrinopenia and hemorrhages, which was reported especially in young women who had received this specific vaccine.
