Most individuals already know about the main symptoms of COVID-19 by now—cough, fever, muscle aches, headaches, and difficulty breathing—including skin rashes, diarrhea, kidney abnormalities, and potentially life-threatening blood clots after vaccination.

Speaking to Adil Ray and Ranvir Singh, Dr Amir said: “It is very rare these very specific blood clots in the brain, it’s common to get minimal side effects after having the vaccine such as a temperature, fevers, chills, headaches, but if your headaches persist beyond four days after having the vaccine then you should seek medical help.

“Other symptoms include blurred vision and nausea.”

The doctor from Bradford appeared on GMB to discuss viewer concerns about the AstraZeneca vaccine after trials at Oxford on children were paused.

Dr Amir then warned of the more serious warning signs as they are given time to develop: “As time develops, if you don’t get treatment, that could lead on to seizures and comas.

“Headaches, blurred vision, nausea, particularly after four days is when you should seek medical help.”

He further added that if you experience symptoms for any longer than four days, you should seek medical help.

Dr. Theodore Warkentin, professor of pathology and molecular medicine at McMaster University and a co-author of one of the recent papers says that vaccinated patients must aware of symptoms such as blurry vision, headache, weakness in their extremities, shortness of breath, chest pain, or unusual swelling in the arms and legs.

Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is also known as CVST or a blood clot is very rare, according to scientists.
