The Associated Press reported that the German health department reported that 21 people who had recently been vaccinated with the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine suffered from blood clots.
The Paul Erich Institute, a federal medical regulator in Germany, told The Associated Press. Seven people who had blood clots died. Of the individuals affected by the blood clot, 19 were women, but only 2 were men.

According to AP, the EMA recommended warning patients and doctors about possible side effects associated with the vaccine.
Approximately 2.27 million doses of AstraZeneca were given during the reported 21 thrombotic cases.
