What are the symptoms?

Dr Thomas said the symptoms of vaccine-induced clotting, as they were known so far, included:

  • Severe gut pain commencing 4–20 days after receiving the vaccine
  • A persistent headache unresponsive to paracetamol
  • A general feeling of systemic unwellness beyond four days after the vaccination
  • Stroke-like symptoms, seizures or vomiting

He said the stroke-like symptoms, also known as a transient ischaemic attack, could feel like:

  • Dizziness
  • Transient loss of speech or balance
  • Weakness on one side of the body
  • Confusion
  • Blurred vision

Dr
Thomas said platelets had been activated by antibodies in a rare
phenomenon where the body thought they were bad because they were
sitting next to some of the vaccine, which resembled a foreign pathogen.
