The Oxford-AstraZeneca covid-19 vaccine is not linked to an increased risk of blood clots and is both safe and effective, an investigation by the European Medicine Agency (EMA) has concluded.1 The in-depth analysis of evidence—including laboratory results, clinical reports, autopsies, and clinical trial data—was carried out after a small number of blood clot cases (37) were reported in people who had received the vaccine. This led to 16 EU countries halting their vaccine rollout.2 “The…
