The AstraZeneca vaccine has led to blood disorders

AstraZeneca’s Covid vaccine has now been linked to another bleeding disorder that causes a purple dotted skin rash. 

A study of 5.4 million Scots found 11 cases of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) per million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca jab.

According to research developed by Edinburgh University, almost 350 Brits have been struck down with a separate rare clotting disorder after getting the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The complication is a series of blood clots occurring alongside abnormally low platelet levels cells which cause blockages.

The condition can cause minor bruising around the body and can leave some with a purple-dotted rash. 

Researchers spotted the link after analysing data from 5.4million people in Scotland between December 8 and April 14. By then, 1.7 million had received their first dose of the jab.

UK health chiefs advised under-40s were given a different vaccine because of their risk of falling seriously ill.

They examined vaccinated individuals’ health records to identify any previous issues with ITP, clotting or bleeding disorders and compared these to people who had not been vaccinated.

Symptoms depend entirely on where the clot is, with brain blockages causing excruciating headaches. Clots in major arteries in the abdomen can cause persistent stomach pain, and ones in the leg can cause swelling of the limbs.

But AstraZeneca’s jab isn’t the only one thought to cause blood clots. Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccine, which has yet to be approved in the UK, has been linked to the rare clotting disorder.

Researchers in Germany believe the problem lies in the adenovirus vector — a common cold virus used so both vaccines can enter the body.
