Australia: First blood clot death 'likely' due to AZ jab

A 48-year-old woman from New South Wales who received an AstraZeneca vaccine died from blood clots on Friday, according to an official statement by the Australian Department of Health's Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

The TGA's Vaccine Safety Investigation Group (VSIG) concluded that the fatality is "likely to be linked with vaccination", stating that the recipient developed extreme symptoms of thromboembolism with thrombocytopenia (TTS) four days after receiving the jab. The deceased recipient was the third report of TTS related to the AstraZeneca jab in the country.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Australia secretly received a shipment of 700,000 AstraZeneca vaccines from the United Kingdom on April 8, though the UK government denied those claims.
