Australia records third AZ vaccine-related death

Australia will review the safety of coronavirus vaccines after the country recorded its third death "likely linked" to the AstraZeneca COVID-19 shot, Australian Health Minister Greg Hunt said on Saturday.

"Vaccines are overwhelmingly safe, recommended and effective," Hunt said in a press conference, adding that all the vaccines would be reviewed amid reports of blood clots in some patients who received the AstraZeneca jab.

A 48-year-old woman in New South Wales appears to have formed a blood clot after being vaccinated with the AstraZeneca jab, however, Hunt said that the woman also had other underlying conditions.
