New deadly side effect warning issued to those with Covid in the last six months
Covid in the last six months could be at risk of a deadly side effect.People who caught the virus less than half a year ago could be more likely to get blood clots, with researchers in Sweden discovering a risk of deep vein thrombosis up to three months post-infection.The research also found that people with Covid in the last six months were more susceptible to a blood clot in the lungs.Reports also indicate that there is a greater chance of a "bleeding event" in the two months after being ill.The new research from Swedish provided more evidence to the vital use of vaccines to protect from Covid complications, which aren't limited when infected with the virus.Experts found that even mild, non-hospitalised Covid patients could be at risk of potentially deadly deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.They said: "Our findings arguably support thromboprophylaxis to avoid thrombotic events, especially for high risk patients, and strengthen the importance of vaccination against Covid-19."The chances of getting a blood clot were found to be higher during the first wave of the pandemic, which suggests improvements in treatment and wide-ranging vaccine coverage has lessened the risk.Researchers at the University of Glasgow looked into "living with Covid" as more governments ease restrictions.The researchers said the study "reminds us of the need to remain vigilant to the complications associated with even mild SARS-CoV-2 infection, including thromboembolism".Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot forms on a deep vein, usually in your legs, and if the blood clot breaks off and travels into the lungs, it can cause a potentially fatal pulmonary embolism.

Alberta expands access to 4th doses of COVID 19 vaccines
COVID-19 vaccine.Beginning Tuesday, those who are ages 70 and older as well as First Nations, Métis and Inuit people 65 and older can get the second booster shot.The province says all seniors in congregate care, regardless of age, can also receive the dose.Health Minister Jason Copping said in a release Wednesday that the number of COVID-19-positive patients in hospital remains stable. However, he said the Omicron subvariant BA.2 now makes up about 80 per cent of new cases in Alberta, bringing the potential for increased transmission and some increase in admissions.Copping said the province is well-positioned to manage any increase in hospital admissions but urged people to protect themselves.“Albertans have access to vaccines and antiviral treatments for protection against severe outcomes,” Copping said.“I encourage everyone to get vaccinated with every dose you’re eligible for and to stay home if you’re feeling unwell.”Eligible people can book their fourth dose provided at least five months have passed since their third.The United Conservative Party government’s announcement follows a recommendation from the National Advisory Committee on Immunization.Earlier Wednesday, Manitoba expanded eligibility requirements for people to get a second booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.Those eligible include residents of personal care homes and in congregate settings, such as supportive housing and assisted living facilities.
