EU watchdog monitoring Pfizer, Moderna jabs for clot risks

THE HAGUE: Europe's medicines watchdog said Friday it was checking whether Covid-19 vaccines made by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna could be linked to rare cases of blood clotting, but there was no indication so far, reports AFP.

The European Medicines Agency last month linked two other EU-approved vaccines, one made by AstraZeneca and another by Johnson & Johnson, to rare but occasionally fatal clots, however it stressed the vaccines' benefits in fighting the coronavirus pandemic outweighed the risks.
