Famous drug and vaccine maker AstraZeneca has announced a global withdrawal of all its corona vaccines.

Famous drug and vaccine maker AstraZeneca has announced a global withdrawal of all its corona vaccines. The UK-based company’s authority confirmed this information in a statement on Tuesday.

In a statement, the company said, the global situation that existed during the Corona pandemic is no longer there. The vaccine that AstraZeneca launched in late 2020 in collaboration with Oxford University to prevent the spread of the virus called ‘corona virus’ is now almost inactive, and even the variants that have evolved from the original virus are no longer lethal.

Oral medicine for corona is also available in the market. As a result, the vaccine is no longer in demand globally. So the authorities have taken this decision. The statement also mentioned that all the partners of the company have already been informed about this.

Recently, a British court filed a lawsuit against AstraZeneca for £100 million in damages. The lawsuit alleges that many people around the world have died from serious side effects from taking AstraZeneca’s Covid vaccine. The authorities of the company made this announcement while the proceedings of the case were going on.

In a document last February, however, AstraZeneca officials acknowledged that a type of physical complication called TTS, or thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome, may occur after receiving the vaccine, but it is extremely rare.

TTS is a physical complication that causes blood clots in various parts of the body and low platelets. At least 81 people have died since the start of the 2020 vaccination program in the UK due to the side effects.

In a statement on Tuesday, AstraZeneca said, “Unbiased statistics show that 3 billion doses of AstraZeneca’s corona vaccine have been used worldwide in the year since 2020, when it was approved by the World Health Organization. These vaccine doses have saved the lives of more than 6.5 million people worldwide. Governments of various countries have appreciated our efforts and the important role that AstraZeneca vaccine has played in eradicating the corona epidemic is recognized globally.

“But these vaccines are redundant now that the original coronavirus is almost inactivated and the other variants that have evolved from it have also weakened. So the company has decided to withdraw all vaccines from the market. The partners have already been informed in this regard.
