I come back doubts about the AstraZeneca vaccine after the cases of thrombosis rare registered on two young towns of And 18 34 years, two women who were found to be deficient in platelets after receiving this vaccine.
Today June 10, 2021 the Cts, the Scientific Technical Committee, as we read on Ansa, will meet for decide on whether to continue the administration of AstraZeneca also to the under 40s, or even under 30s, or whether to advise against it. Currently, vaccination is preferentially recommended for people over 60, but the situation could change by making sure that even during the Open Days this vaccine is not given to those under 40 years of age.
In fact, we remember that in the Open Day It is generally not avoided to give the AstraZeneca vaccine to younger people.
In the next few hours or days we should have an answer and we will update the article as soon as we have news on the merits.
Pending this decision, many regions in Italy have suspended the administration of AstraZeneca to young people as a precaution. Also in Naples the Open Day scheduled for today has been canceled, but each Region is deciding autonomously. In fact, in some of these, such as Lazio and Sicily, there have been no stops.
