There were 209 cases in the UK of the rare combination of blood clots with low platelet counts following vaccination with the AstraZeneca jab, with 41 deaths, up to 21 April.
This is up from 168 cases and 32 deaths the previous week.
The data shows 24 cases of clots in people aged 18 to 29, 28 in those in their thirties, 30 in people in their forties, 59 in people in their fifties and 57 in those aged 60 and above, with the age not known in the remaining cases.
“On the basis of this ongoing scientific review, it has concluded that the evidence of a link with COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca is stronger, but more work is still needed,” the MHRA said.
