There have been seven cases of capillary leak syndrome, in which blood escapes into the body from tiny blood capillaries. The MHRA has stated that they would "continue to closely monitor this situation."

Is it hazardous? Attacks, according to the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD), frequently need "emergency treatment," therefore, it appears to be dangerous. A sudden drop in blood pressure can occur when blood leaks out of capillaries, which can be "life-threatening."

"The existing data does not show that AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccination causes capillary leak syndrome," the MHRA noted.

"The vaccinations' projected advantages in reducing COVID-19 and significant COVID-19 consequences substantially surpass any presently known negative effects."

Other Side Effects

Other negative effects that have been reported include:

  • Discomfort or pain in the injection area
  • Fatigue
  • Terrible headaches 
  • Muscle aches
  • Chills
  • Pains in the joints
  • Fever

These adverse effects were often mild to moderate in severity, and they all went away within a few days of the injection. The second dosage of the AstraZeneca jab was thought to have "milder" adverse effects than the first. Furthermore, side effects were recorded "less often" as well.

The MHRA has confirmed a "stronger correlation" between the AstraZeneca vaccination and blood clots since April 7.

The blood clot is known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST), and it occurs when platelet levels are low (thrombocytopenia).

People who have this exceedingly unusual adverse effect after their first AstraZeneca injection should avoid getting another one.

Worrying Symptoms

If any of the following symptoms appear four days after your initial AstraZeneca injection, get medical help immediately:

  • A terrible headache that won't go away with over-the-counter pain relievers or that gets worse or feels worse when you lie down or bend over.
  • An uncommon headache that might include impaired vision, disorientation, trouble speaking, weakness, sleepiness, or convulsions (fits)
  • Rash or bleeding under the skin beyond the injection site that resembles tiny bruises
  • Shortness of breath, chest discomfort, leg swelling, or persistent abdominal (tummy) pain are all symptoms of a heart attack.

Those who haven't had any negative side effects from the AstraZeneca vaccination are urged to obtain a second shot.

An alternative to the AstraZeneca vaccine will be provided to anyone under the age of 40.

More than 24 million individuals have already received their second immunization, according to the government. This might have been an AstraZeneca, Pfizer, or Moderna vaccination, all of which are available in the United Kingdom.

The number of persons testing positive for the condition has increased by 20.5 percent in the last seven days after the Covid limits were eased.

The number of fatalities has also climbed by 14% in the last week, indicating that the number of infections has grown. With 826 new patients admitted to the hospital, the number of persons admitted to the hospital has also increased.

These patterns might be seen as concerning, implying that the June 21 deadline will be postponed.
