Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine update – 17/03/2021
Chiswick is now reaching the end of vaccinating patients over the age of 50 or those with underlying health conditions. The AstraZeneca vaccine is the only vaccine that we are being given for first doses. We realise that some people may be worried about this vaccine but at the practice we think any possible side effects are outweighed by the advantage of having the vaccine , please see below further advice:
NHSE have confirmed a review has taken place of all available safety data from over 17 million people vaccinated with AstraZeneca vaccine in UK and EU, there was no evidence of an increased risk of blood clots (DVT or pulmonary embolism) among people vaccinated with its vaccine.
The MHRA have also released a statement advising that people should still go and get their COVID-19 vaccine when asked to do so, and the European Medicines Agency have also stated that there is no indication that the reported blood clots were caused by the AZ vaccine.
Please DO NOT contact the surgery for Covid 19 vaccination queries, be assured that we will update the website with any new information and that we will contact you via telephone or text to arrange your vaccination. We are instructed to follow NHS Covid 19 vaccination roll out guidelines.
Please Wait to be contacted.
