On Monday, Ontario’s associate chief medical officer of health Dr. Barbara Yaffe reported the province faced a total of 14 total cases of blood clotting due to the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, 10 of which are vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT). Ontario recently put a pause on administering the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine due to the extremely rare blood clotting disorder, but will offer second doses to those who want one.
