Incidents of blood clotting are rare in India: Dr VK Paul, Convenor of Empowered Group for National Vaccination programme

Union Health Ministry’s timely intervention ensured in mitigating the effects of the Corona pandemic. The Ministry has taken several measures to communicate correct and verified information to the citizens. In an attempt to resolve several queries related to the COVID vaccination programme, the Centre used all possible mediums to reach out to the people and dispel all related myths. AIR Correspondent takes a look at one such frequently asked question by people with regard to the concern about blood clotting after taking the vaccine shots.

Convenor of Empowered Group for National Vaccination programme Dr. V. K. Paul has said that a few cases of blood clotting did come to the fore, particularly with regard to AstraZeneca Vaccine.

This complication occurred in Europe where this risk was seen to be present to some extent in their younger population due to their lifestyle, body and genetic structure. Allaying similar apprehensions among people in India, Dr Paul said that incidents of blood clotting are very rare.

Director of All India Institute of Medical Sciences, AIIMS New Delhi, Dr. Randeep Guleria has said that blood clotting after surgery occurs less in Indian population in comparison to that in US and European populations. He said, this side-effect, named as Vaccine induced Thrombosis, is very rare in India and there is no need to be scared of this.
