AstraZeneca vaccines

For those who received the AstraZeneca as their first vaccine, rest assured that you did the right thing! The the reason for the pause of AstraZeneca rollout as a first vaccine was multifactorial (including an increased supply of mRNA vaccines and declining COVID numbers). You took an extremely effective vaccine, decreasing your risk of illness, hospitalization and death, and contributing to the decreasing transmission of COVID in our community. The overall risk of blood clots remains very low (estimated 1.7: 100,000 based on Ontario data and 1: 1 million for 2nd doses based on UK data).

Please do not phone or email the clinic in regard to COVID vaccines.
