NSW suspends AstraZeneca vaccinations for ALL residents


NSW suspends AstraZeneca vaccinations for ALL residents after Australia’s top doctors advised it not be used for anyone under 50 over link to rare blood clot condition

New South Wales has suspended AstraZeneca vaccinations for all age groups over the jabs link to a rare blood clot condition.

Australian health authorities on Thursday night recommended the vaccine not be used for people under 50, but was safe for older recipients.

However, NSW Health said it had ‘temporarily paused’ giving it to anyone until it could update its informed consent information.

‘Following the new advice from the Commonwealth last night, informed consent information will be updated to provide patients and those administering the AstraZeneca vaccine with the latest information,’ it said 

More to come.
