UK experts taking AZ jab concerns 'very seriously'

Member of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), which advises British health services on those processes, Adam Finn, said on Wednesday the body was "very seriously" and "thoroughly" investigating the potential links between AstraZeneca PLC and Oxford University's jab against COVID-19 and the creation of blood clots.

Finn told BBC Radio 4 the previously observed cases "stand out and make[s] us think that this is something a little bit different and out of the norm." Still, he noted there had so far been only 30 such occurrences noted in 18 million people that received AstraZeneca's vaccine.

Earlier, the United Kingdom's Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) advised the country's medical workers to continue inoculating people with the jab despite pending examinations.
