Spain: « no link » between the death of a woman and AstraZeneca vaccine

A day after the announcement of the resumption of vaccination, Spanish health authorities said the death of a Spanish woman who had had blood clots was not linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine she had received some time before.

« There is no cause / effect relationship between the administration of the AstraZeneca vaccine and the death of this woman, » said Jesus Aguirre, the head of health for the Andalusia region at a press conference.

Three investigations had been opened after the formation of blood clots in people who had received the AstraZeneca vaccine against Covid-19.

Among them, a 43-year-old professor, who died of a cerebral hemorrhage and does not suffer from any known pathology, according to the Spanish press:

« What we know is that in these three cases, there is a temporal link (with the vaccine, editor’s note) but it has not been established that there was a cause and effect link », Minister of Health Carolina Darias explained on Wednesday.
