Austria To Suspend AstraZeneca Vaccine After One Dies, Another In Hospital- Health Officials

Health Officials in Austria have said that they would suspend the AstraZeneca batch vaccine.

This was said after one 49-year-old nurse had taken the vaccine some coupled of days before she died.

Another woman who took the jab was also said to have developed Pulmonary embolism but not responding to treatments.

The 49-year-old nurse died two days after having the jab from “severe blood coagulation problems”

The National Office for Health System Safety (BASG) said late on Sunday, adding that there was “no evidence of a causal link” between the jab and the woman’s death.

The Health officials said that the final decision has been resolved to suspending the vaccine batch as a precaution.

Both women received the vaccination at a hospital in the town of Zwettl, west of the capital Vienna.

An autopsy is being carried out at Vienna’s AKH hospital on the woman who died, with the results expected in the coming weeks.

“Based on the known clinical data, a causal relationship cannot be established, as thrombotic events are not one of the typical side effects of the vaccination,” the BASG statement said.

“The necessary investigation is currently underway… to definitively rule out any possible link.”
