Irish people concerned with “rushed vaccines” say they’ve been “vindicated” today as Ireland suspends use of AstraZeneca vaccine over fears of blood clots

Concerned Irish citizens who feared that rushed covid vaccines could cause serious issues down the line are claiming that they’re completely vindicated given today’s announcement that Ireland is suspending the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine due to severe fears of blood clots.

Bloods clots could possibly lead to death or possible serious health implications such as a stroke.

People had feared that a vaccine had been rushed out and not properly tested, and it would appear that their concerns have been proven right.

Over 110,000 Irish people have taken the AstraZeneca vaccine, but as of today, it has been suspended in Ireland.

According ro, in a statement, the deputy chief medical officer, Dr Ronan Glynn, said: “This recommendation has been made following a report from the Norwegian Medicines Agency of four new reports of serious blood clotting events in adults after vaccination with Covid-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca.

“It has not been concluded that there is any link between the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca® and these cases. However, acting on the precautionary principal, and pending receipt of further information, the NIAC has recommended the temporary deferral of the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca vaccination programme in Ireland.”

We reported this week that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said “there was no evidence so far linking AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine to illnesses in two people who received it in Austria” and that the EMA statement was made before an Austrian investigation into blood clotting after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine concluded.

According to, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) were not immediately available for comment as DENMARK announced that they will be suspending the AstraZeneca vaccine for two weeks whilst they carry out investigations into blood clots. Denmark report that there has been one known death from a blood clot where the patient received the vaccine.

Soren Brostrom, Director of the Danish Health Authority said “Both we and the Danish Medicines Agency have to respond to reports of possible serious side-effects, both from Denmark and other European countries.”

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) said earlier this week that there was no evidence so far linking AstraZeneca to the two blood clot cases in Austria. Their statement was made before the official investigation in Austria has concluded.
