Listen for Concerns About Blood Clots With COVID-19 Vaccines
Patients will ask whether COVID-19 vaccines cause blood clots.
This is due to reports of serious blood clots along with low platelets after the AstraZeneca or Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine. Both are viral vector vaccines.
The risk is extremely RARE. For example, estimates show just a handful of cases per million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
