  Decision about AstraZeneca's use in Australia to be make this week An urgent investigation was launched into the potential side effects of the Covid-19 vaccine after a Melbourne man who received the jab was hospitalised with a rare blood clotting condition. Experts have been holding talks with European regulators to determine whether the 44-year-old's low blood platelets and 22 other similar cases in the UK are linked to the vaccine. The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) will convene on Wednesday to weigh up the risks and benefits of AstraZeneca jabs once further information is provided from international discussions.

An Australian woman who developed blood clots just hours after getting a Covid-19 vaccine has died.

The 48-year-old, from the Lake Macquarie area in New South Wales, was given the vaccine last Friday, but developed major blood clots the next day and was put on dialysis.

Daily Mail Australia understands the woman, who was diabetic but otherwise previously in good health, was placed in an intensive care unit and died on Wednesday.

A NSW Health spokesman said the department could not confirm any link between the woman receiving the vaccine and her death.

It is not yet known whether the 48-year-old received the AstraZeneca vaccine - which has been linked to blood clots overseas - or the Pfizer vaccine.

Here's why the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine is recommended for over 50s but not other Australians

  Here's why the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine is recommended for over 50s but not other Australians But if you're wondering what Australia's vaccine changes mean for you, or whether it's still safe to take the AstraZeneca vaccine, here's what the expert advice is saying.With the government accepting advice that the small risk of blood clots associated with the AstraZeneca vaccine means it should not be given to people under 50, its plan to vaccinate Australians against the virus is in disarray.

Australia had been relying on the AstraZeneca dose for the bulk of its vaccination program - but links to rare cases of blood clots in some countries has thrown the government's rollout into disarray.

Experts in Australia now say those under 50s should be offered an alternative, while the British-made jab has been stopped altogether in Denmark.

A spokesman for NSW Health told Daily Mail Australia it 'does not speculate on or discuss individual cases'.

'But the death of anyone is always a tragedy and our condolences are with the family and loved ones of the person who has passed away,' he added.

Australia reveals new Covid-19 vaccine timeline

  Australia reveals new Covid-19 vaccine timeline Australia has revealed their new Covid-19 vaccine rollout timeline after concerns over the AstraZeneca jab threw the plan into chaos. Trade Minister Dan Tehan said on Sunday the aim was to have every willing Australian receive their first dose by the end of the year. 'That is definitely the aim, that is the goal we have set - trying to have all Australians have a dose by the end of the year,' he told Sky News.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation advised earlier this month that people aged under 50 should not be vaccinated with the AstraZeneca jab due to the risk of blood clots.

It’s Not Over for the J&J Vaccine

  It’s Not Over for the J&J Vaccine A pause is just that—a pause—in which health officials can reevaluate the data at hand.Experts haven’t yet conclusively determined whether J&J’s vaccine is directly causing these strange clots, or how frequently the condition might be occurring, because they’re relying largely on people reporting their health conditions to federal agencies. Roughly 7 million doses of the vaccine have been administered so far in the United States; among them were about 1 million women under the age of 50. “I think it’s reasonable to say it is a rare event, but I don’t think we should go into false precision in this kind of situation,” Saad Omer, a vaccine expert at Yale, told me.

News of the 48-year-old's death comes on the same day Denmark announced it will be ceasing use of the AstraZeneca vaccine all together, while under 30s in the UK are already being offered alternative vaccines.

Denmark was the first country to pause the use of the AstraZeneca jab in March amid concerns about blood clots.

Several other countries followed suit though most, including Germany and France, have since resumed the use of the vaccine for older people.

Denmark has also put Johnson & Johnson's vaccine on pause pending further investigations into a possible link to rare blood clot cases.

The European Union's drug watchdog said last week that it had found a possible link between the AstraZeneca vaccine and very rare blood clot cases.

However it said the risk of dying from Covid-19 was 'much greater' than the risk of mortality from rare side effects.

The AstraZeneca vaccine is significantly cheaper than other vaccines and is easier to store as it does not require to be kept at an extremely low temperature.

The concern over clots and mixed messages surrounding the vaccine are expected to affect people's willingness to take it.

Scott Morrison promised the whole adult population would be immunised by October, but the rollout has since been derailed by the jab's link to blood clots.

Twenty million doses of Pfizer are on their way but no more help is on the way for younger Australians until at least October.

The prime minister said he 'would like' all Australians to get at least their first dose by the end of the year, but made no guarantees.

In a desperate attempt to get the stalled program back on track, he plans to create huge hubs to ramp up vaccinations.

'NSW Health investigates these events and refers its expert panel findings to the TGA, which is responsible for assessing causality,' a spokesman said.

'Many conditions can arise during normal life, whether or not a vaccine is administered, but it remains important to report any new serious or unexpected events so that safety can be appropriately monitored.

'Anyone concerned that they are experiencing a serious adverse event following vaccination should see their health care provider in the first instance or dial 000 in an emergency.'

One of the major risk factors for blood clots is diabetes.

Workmates mourn woman, 48, who died after having AstraZeneca vaccine

  Workmates mourn woman, 48, who died after having AstraZeneca vaccine Sanitarium Health Food Company, which is based on the New South Wales Central Coast and makes Weet-Bix and other breakfast products, confirmed the woman was one of its 800 employees. 'We understand this case is under investigation by the coroner and the health department,' a spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia. 'The company is saddened by the loss of a much loved employee, and we offer our heartfelt condolences to her family, friends and workmates.

The metabolic disease that causes high blood sugar levels increases the risk of plaque build-up in the arteries which can cause dangerous blood clots.

In fact, nearly 80 percent of people who have diabetes will eventually die of clot-related causes, according to Heart.org.

But it still remains unclear how some Covid vaccines may trigger blood clots.

The 48-year-old's death comes just two days after it was revealed a Western Australian woman in her 40s was hospitalised with blood clots after getting the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The woman received treatment for 'thrombosis with thrombocytopenia' and is now in a stable condition.

Back in April, a 44-year-old man in Victoria also developed blood clots after being inoculated with the AstraZeneca vaccine.

He has since recovered.

A Normal Summer Depends on These Key Vaccine Holdouts .
If the stars align, the United States may yet be able to vaccinate its way out of the COVID-19 epidemic. The Biden Administration says it has procured adequate amounts of highly effective vaccines so that any adult who wants to get a shot may now do so. By June or July, if we immunize most American adults and adolescents, levels of virus transmission will decrease precipitously. In an epidemiological modeling study with the CUNY School of Public Health, we found that roughly three-quarters of the susceptible U.S. population would need to be vaccinated to significantly slow or stop virus transmission. However, the new B.1.1.
