Listen for Concerns About Blood Clots With COVID-19 Vaccines
Patients will ask whether COVID-19 vaccines cause blood clots.
This is due to reports of serious blood clots along with low platelets after the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine in the U.S...and the AstraZeneca vaccine in other countries. Both are viral vector vaccines.
The risk is extremely RARE...with just a handful of cases to date in about 8 million doses of the Janssen vaccine given in the U.S.
