Australians have more chance of winning the lotto than suffering a blood clot due to the AstraZeneca Covid vaccine, says TGA chief 

Australians have more chance of winning the lotto than suffering a blood clot after taking the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, the boss of the medicines regulator has said.

Professor John Skerritt, head of the Therapeutic Goods Administration, said only two people in Australia have suffered the rare clotting event after about 700,000 received the AstraZeneca vaccine.

That’s a rate of one in 350,000. Oz Lotto says one in 55 players win a lotto prize, although only one in 45 million win the jackpot.   

Talking about the chance of getting a blood clot caused by the vaccine, Prof Skerritt said: ‘It is an extremely remote and unlikely event. It is a very rare finding. As I said before, your chances of winning Lotto are much higher.’
