Dublin:

A 39-year-old British woman died in a Cypriot hospital after a incident after receiving the AstraZeneca , the official Cyprus News Agency said Monday.

Charalambos Charilaou, the spokesperson for the state health services, told CNA that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) would investigate the death.

The woman, treated at Nicosia General Hospital’s intensive care unit, received the first dose of the vaccine on May 6 in the resort town of Paphos on the western coast of the Mediterranean .

The woman, was not named, suffered symptoms days later.

Cyprus health have opened an investigation to see if the “serious thrombotic episode” was linked to the AstraZeneca jab.

Cypriot authorities are investigating another

Four other cases of “mild” blood clotting incidents — three of which occurred after an AstraZeneca shot and one after a jab — are also being investigated by Cyprus.

Some countries have restricted or dropped AstraZeneca shots from national vaccine campaigns over very rare blood clots, though the EMA says the benefits outweigh the risks.

AstraZeneca is the backbone of the vaccination rollout in Cyprus, where family doctors also allowed to administer the jab to anybody aged over 20.

But many people booking online to get the vaccine have snubbed AstraZeneca and opted for other shots.

According to Our World in Data figures, Cyprus is ranked third in the for vaccinations per population, administering 57.54 doses per 100 people.

Nearly 49 percent of Cyprus’ adult population has received a Covid-19 vaccine shot, and 21 percent are fully vaccinated.
