Geneva/UNI: The World Health Organization (WHO) may update its safety assessment on the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine within the next two days, informed an official on Tuesday.

The director of the Regulation and Prequalification Department at the WHO Regerio Gaspar said at a press briefing today: "We will convene tomorrow also our Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety, that together with other experts, will look at this data. So we expect that probably by ... Wednesday or Thursday we might have a fresh conclusive assessment from our experts."

There were reports of the AstraZeneca vaccine being linked to rare blood clots developing on those who received the shot, according to an official at the European Medicines Agency.
