Good episode? Give it some love!
The European Medicines Agency has reported that it's aware of 25 cases of rare blood clots from people who have had the Pfizer mRNA vaccine, and 5 cases from people who have had the Moderna vaccine.

The numbers were revealed during a press briefing into blood clotting issues related to the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

It's the first time such a number has been reported by a medical regulator, and may suggest very rare clotting events may not be confined only to AstraZeneca and Johnson and Johnson.

The co-chair of Australia's vaccination advisory group Professor Allen Cheng has told Coronacast that there is still a lot of uncertainty, especially if reported cases have been fully investigated.

So on today's Coronacast, what has the EMA said and is it real?
