Italy Suspends AstraZeneca’s COVID Vaccine After Teen’s Brain Hemorrhage Death

Italy Suspends AstraZeneca’s COVID Vaccine After Teen’s Brain Hemorrhage Death

The government of Italy has suspended AstraZeneca/Oxford University’s experimental AZD1222 COVID-19 vaccine for people under 60 years of age in that country. The decision, announced on June 11, 2021, follows the recent death of 18-year-old Camilla Canepa, who died of a cerebral  due to a blood clot 16 days after receiving the first dose of the experimental vaccine on May 25.1 2 3 4

In a press conference, Franco Locatelli, coordinator of the Technical Scientific Committee (CTS) which advises the government of Italy on COVID-19, said:

The epidemiological scenario has changed, and so has the relationship between the benefits of vaccination and the potential risk of unusual blood clots.3

Locatelli said the CTS is also recommending that people under 60 years old who received the first dose of AZD1222 be given a different COVID-19 vaccine for the second dose. He attributed this recommendation to “an excess of caution.”2

Concern About Young People Getting AstraZeneca COVID Vaccine

The Italian government has reportedly told those under 60 who were initially vaccinated with AZD1222 that “the cycle should be completed with a second dose of mRNA (messenger ribonucleic acid) vaccine” such as Pfizer/BioNTech’s BNT162b2 or Moderna/NIAID’s mRNA-1273, given eight to 12 weeks later.3

Although no causal link has been established between Canepa’s death and AZD1222, the incident has raised concerns in Italy about using the vaccine on younger people. The young woman, who was from the town of Sestri Levante in northwest Italy, apparently had autoimmune thrombocytopenia (low blood platelet count) and was on double hormone therapy. It is unclear if she had disclosed this condition prior to vaccination.2 3 4

According to an article by ANSA:

The case of Camilla Canepa has once again raised doubts in the scientific and medical community as to whether this type of vaccine should be given to young people and in particular young women.5

Second Suspension of AZD1222 Vaccine in Italy

The suspension of AZD1222 in Italy is the second suspension of the vaccine in the country during the past four months due to safety concerns. The first suspension occurred in mid-March following the death of a 57-year-old music teacher, Sandro Tognatti, who died within hours of getting the vaccine in his hometown of Biella.6

Authorities in Italy’s northern Piedmont region subsequently launched a criminal investigation. They wanted to be “completely sure” that Tognatti’s death “cannot be attributed to the above-mentioned inoculation.”6

    The most perful weapon in the world is not a bomb. The most powerful weapon in the world is used by who controls the the flow or information to the massed. In this case -The NEWS.

    Here is s a short version of someting that most peope are not aware of.
    Pharm board members sit on boards of MMS.

    Here is longer version:

    Another sad death of a young person with big pharma’s name all over it. Seems like we have flipped flopped whereas a year ago we were being told to stay home and lock ourselves down even to save only 1 life. The electronic billboards along the interstate even suggested this. Stay home and save a life! Now, no lives matter at all. 10’s of thousands are dying from the injections and now pharma, the FDA and CDC couldn’t care less.

    Blind faith in the vaccines. Corporate controlled media does terrible things to the mind.

      Vaccination is a lazy and futile way to desired health.
      FREEDOM of CHOICE No Matter What.

    ALL Vaccines are ALWAYS a risk.
    This young woman’s choice was. HIGHLY RISKY, particularly given her comorbidity, which she apparently was choosing allopathic treatment for, another HIGHLY RISKY choice. COVID, altho apparently real, is not lethal enough – and doesn’t have known long-term residuals to make this HIGHLY RISKY choice of vaccination.

    Well said, Tom…whatever happened to: “NO death is acceptable”, folks were shamed and blamed for compromising other lives by not distancing, masking and staying home!

    Angela has done a wonderful job of documenting the deaths frm the shot. Here is what she is working on now:

    The poison they are injecting into people is complete and utter negligence. Over 13000 people in Europe alone have died because of adverse reactions to these so called Vaccines. When are govt’s going to open their eyes to this insanity. No one deserves to be used as a pin cushion for big Pharma and their poison.

    There no such thing as a safe vaccine. In fact there will never be a safe vaccine.

  9. Nancy Allen   June 15, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    And the risk of death and permanent injury all for a virus that is effectively treated with Ivermectin protocol. For a virus that is extremely rare to be harmful to young healthy people.
    This is a crime against Humanity. Trust in Pharma and its new ‘discoveries’ is completely broken.

    Why wouldn’t they just stop all vaccines rather than just those under 60. The Salk Institute founded by Jonas Salk revealed the SARS-CoV2 spike protein is what actually caused vascular damage in COVID patients and COVID vaccine recipients, promoting the strokes, heart attacks, migraines, blood clots and other harmful reactions that already killed thousands of Americans. It’s going to kill you if you’re over 60 too.

    Why wouldn’t they just stop all vaccines rather than just those under 60. It’s going to kill you just as much if you’re over 60 too.

    It is very sad!!!

    The have been manipulated and lied to in regards to this coronavirus.

    The animal studies always told us the answer about this family of viruses and mRNA vaccines.
