Trier / Mainz (dpa / lrs) - A woman from the Trier area was also diagnosed with thrombosis (blood clots) in the cerebral veins after a corona vaccination with Astrazeneca.

The 47-year-old will be treated in a clinic, there is no danger to life, said the Rhineland-Palatinate Health Minister Sabine Bätzing-Lichtenthäler (SPD) on Wednesday in Mainz.

The diagnosis was made on Sunday and the ministry was informed on Tuesday evening.

When the woman was vaccinated was initially just as unclear as the question of whether there was a connection with the vaccination.

In Germany, the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI), which is responsible for vaccine safety, recommended suspending vaccinations with Astrazeneca.

According to information from the Ministry of Health, a total of eight cases of thrombosis (blood clots) in the cerebral veins in connection with the vaccination were reported in Germany by Tuesday evening.

According to Bätzing-Lichtenthäler, the Trier fall is probably the ninth.


The number of cases is therefore statistically significantly higher than in the population without vaccination.

According to the PEI, those affected were mostly women.

Whether there is a causal relationship between vaccination and thrombosis is currently being investigated.
