AstraZeneca vaccine side effects: Six new symptoms that require 'medical attention' - MHRA

Despite these assurances, the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), the UK’s regulatory body, has issued advice to mitigate the risks posed by the vaccine.

As a precautionary measure, administration of the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca in patients with a history of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) should only be considered when the benefit outweighs any potential risks, advises the MHRA.

CVST, which occurs when a blood clot forms in the brain. It has been linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine.
