Italian media have identified a man who died hours after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine against Covid-19.

Professor Andrew Pollard, director of the Oxford vaccine group which developed the Oxford-AstraZeneca jab, has said “safety is clearly absolutely paramount” and no link had been found between the vaccine and blood clots.
