EU urged to expand the list of side effects of AstraZeneca vaccine

The European Medicines Agency recommends expanding the list of side effects of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine. In particular, we are talking about anaphylactic reaction and hypersensitivity.

This was reported on the regulator’s website.

“Following reports of safety concerns regarding cases of anaphylaxis (severe allergic reactions) with the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, PRAC recommends updating the product information to include anaphylaxis and hypersensitivity (allergic reactions) as side effects in section 4.8,” said message.

This decision was made due to reports of possible anaphylaxis, which was observed in about five million vaccinated.

“After careful examination of the data, the PRAC concluded that at least some of these cases have a vaccine-related relationship,” the regulator said.

As previously reported, the countries are massively stopping the use of the drug from the coronavirus company AstraZeneca. Refused already in Denmark, Norway, Italy, Iceland, Bulgaria, Romania, and Thailand.
