The man received treatment after getting his first shot of the vaccine.

"We have confirmed the first case of the rare blood clotting condition known as vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT) in Ontario", a statement from Dr. David Williams, Ontario's chief medical officer of health reads.

IRELAND'S HEALTH PRODUCTS regulator has reported some blood clotting events associated with the AstraZeneca vaccine in patients who received the Covid-19 jab here.

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization suggests that people 30 and older may receive a dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, but Newfoundland and Labrador health officials have no plans to change their recommendations regarding the vaccine.

There has been scrutiny of the AstraZeneca vaccine on the issue of the very rare clots and some countries, including Britain, have recommended that only people over a certain age get the shot.

After shoving one girl to the ground, she then turned and advanced on another girl who was standing near a parked vehicle. Officers had responded to an attempted stabbing call when police shot the girl at about 4.45pm local time, police said .

"At this time, and based on current evidence, NACI recommends that the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine may be offered to individuals 30 years of age and older, without contraindications, if the individual does not wish to wait for an mRNA vaccine, and the benefits outweigh the risks", said Dr. Shelley Deeks, NACI vice-chair.

Ontario expanded use of the shot to those 40 years of age and older earlier this week and has seen its daily vaccination numbers leap ahead since doing so.

Williams adds that while the serious reaction remains extremely rare, his team has a robust process in place to monitor for any adverse events and have taken steps to make sure that these specific cases are identified and treated as quickly as possible.

"The Health Canada approved vaccines are the best way to protect your health and those around you". Individuals who receive their first jab but subsequently become infected, however, will receive their vaccines as soon as they are fully recovered.
