AstraZeneca vaccine: Blood clotting in younger people 'not surprising' says professor

There have been a handful of rare reports of blood clotting in younger people, particularly younger women under the age of 55, following the AstraZeneca jab. The vaccine is not associated with an increase in the overall risk of blood clots in those who receive it, however. What’s more, health bodies are yet to establish a causal connection. Nonetheless, the risk to younger people is not entirely surprising, said Paul Hunter, medical microbiologist at the University of East Anglia.
