Anyone with headache for over 4 days after Oxford jab should seek help – UK regulator

People who experience a headache for more than four days after having the Oxford-AstraZeneca jab should seek medical attention, the UK’s medicines regulator has said.

They should also get help if they have bruising somewhere other than the injection site after a few days, it added.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said on Thursday its latest advice was a “precautionary measure” following a “very small” number of reports of an extremely rare form of blood clot occurring in conjunction with lowered platelets after vaccination.

Sinus vein thrombosis (CVST) describes the formation of a blood clot in the cerebral vein of the brain.

Symptoms include headache, blurred vision, fainting or loss of consciousness.

There have been five cases – a rate of one in 1 million people vaccinated – reported to the MHRA, which has assured the condition can also occur naturally in people who have not had the jab, along with people who have COVID-19.

It stressed that no causal link with the vaccine had been found, adding that investigations would continue.

More from Covid-19

Meanwhile, the agency said a “rigorous” scientific review had found no evidence of the jab causing blood clots in veins – a condition called venous thromboembolism.

Current advice is to still attend vaccination appointments as scheduled.
