JCVI Dismisses Baseless Vaccine Blood Clot Claims

As France, Germany, and Italy announce they will suspend use of the AstraZeneca jab, the Deputy Chair of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), Professor Anthony Harden, has hit back at claims that the vaccine increases risk of blood clotting, saying ‘We’ve given 11 million doses here and there’s no evidence of increased risk of blood clots’. On other countries suspending their rollout of the jab, Harden simply said “I expect some will start reversing those decisions soon”…

Here is the full list of countries which have currently suspended use of the Oxford jab:

  • Netherlands
  • Denmark
  • Norway
  • Iceland
  • Ireland
  • Bulgaria
  • Indonesia
  • Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Germany
  • France
  • Italy

The World Health Organisation (WHO), the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) have all made it clear there is no link between the vaccine and blood clotting, and there is no credible reason to withhold the jab. In fact, the incidence rate for those vaccinated is actually lower than the general population…

Of course, this isn’t the first time other countries have invented problems with the Oxford jab out of thin air. The jab works, it’s safe, and Guido suggests these countries stop coming up with excuses not to use it…

Vaccine Scientist Condemns BMA and Single-Dose Vaccine Fear-Mongering Sunday People

Top vaccine scientist and member of the government’s vaccine committee, Adam Finn, has diplomatically condemned the British Medical Association for their anti-scientific scaremongering over the government’s single vaccine dose policy. Responding to last week’s warning by the BMA that the 12-week gap between doses is “difficult to justify”, Finn told the Today programme:

“I must be careful what I say about the BMA but I would, I suppose, say that it would be a good idea to really understand the issues before making public pronouncements.”

His condemnation of fear-mongering also extended to the Mirror Group’s Sunday People for misleading readers over their editorialBoris Johnson gambles with lives by ignoring vaccine science”:

Nick Robinson: “Over the weekend some newspapers – the People, the Mirror and others – were suggesting that the government was going against the science in this in order to get more first doses into people and make the figures look better, actually in a sense am I rightly understanding you’re saying the opposite; the science is actually what the government seems to be following?”

Finn: “Yes, absolutely, and I think people are being misled in the sense that it’s half the story, this absence of evidence story ignores the fact that there’s absolutely rock-solid evidence that if you give a dose of the vaccine to more people you give them protection and save lives. There’s no real question about that.”

How many times throughout this crisis has the Mirror attacked the government for supposedly not following the science?
