Sputnik V vaccination does not cause ‘blood clots’: Russia

Russian Federation on Wednesday Clarifies that its doses of Sputnik V vaccination do not cause blood clots.

According to the reports, the Russian vaccine has been registered for use in many countries. The blood clot concerns raise over the AstraZeneca vaccine due to which dozens of countries stop the use of AstraZeneca.

On Wednesday, the state-run Gamaleya research institute, which developed the Sputnik V vaccine, said there was no risk of blot clots from its jab.

“A comprehensive analysis of adverse events during clinical trials and over the course of mass vaccinations with the Sputnik V vaccine showed that there were no cases of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis,” it said in a statement.

Earlier, the United Kingdom (UK) regulator revealed on Saturday that out of 30 people who have suffered from blood clots after getting the AstraZeneca vaccine, seven people have died.

When this news of seven deaths came several European countries have paused the use of the AstraZeneca injections over a potential link to blood clots.

The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency said in a statement that,

“Out of the 30 reports up to and including 24 March, sadly 7 have died.”

The European Medicines Agency (EMA), which works as same as World Health Organization previously declared the AstraZeneca vaccine harmless. EMA further added earlier that, it believes the vaccine is safe and that experts have found no exact risk factors such as age, gender, or medical history.
