Facts about the AstraZeneca vaccine

The AstraZeneca vaccine against COVID-19 has been approved for use by Health Canada.

The vaccine, developed by researchers at Oxford University and AstraZeneca, has been shown to be extremely effective against COVID-19: 100% effectiveness at preventing severe disease or death in clinical trials.

The AstraZeneca vaccine has already been widely administered in Europe. A rare but serious blood clot was observed in small numbers of patients after this vaccine was administered. As of the end of March, among more than 20 million people who have been given AstraZeneca across Europe, there had been 79 cases, and 19 deaths, making for a risk of about four in one million of developing a blood clot, and one in a million of dying. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has affirmed its safety and efficacy and recommends it. Of those countries that had temporarily suspended its use, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain have resumed dosing.

The World Health Organization has affirmed, “The WHO considers that the benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine outweigh its risks, and recommends that vaccinations continue.”

Quebec’s Ministry of Health has determined, “At this time, there is no information to suggest that the AstraZeneca vaccine carries a higher risk than any other vaccine.”

Conclusion

Worldwide to date, more than 2.8 million people have died of COVID-19, including more than 23,000 in Canada, with more than 10,700 of those deaths in Quebec. Nearly 320,000 Quebecers have been infected with COVID-19.

Loved ones have been lost. Lives have been upended. The economy has been devastated. The development of effective vaccines, including that produced by AstraZeneca, is the best hope for ending this global pandemic.

Health authorities in Quebec and Canada have approved the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine. All Quebecers are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible.
