Does the COVID Vaccine make a Blood Clot worse?

I would guess that someone that has a blood clot building, and might otherwise get it next week, could feasibly have the blood clot brought forward by having the vaccine injection.

What are the common causes of a Blood Clot?

Risk factors that can contribute to a blood clot:

  • Coronary heart disease.
  • Obesity.
  • Smoking.
  • Pregnancy.
  • High dose oral contraceptive pill.
  • Family history of blood clot or previous blood clot.
  • Blood clotting disorders.
  • Sitting still, or bed rest for long periods of time.
  • Recent surgery.
  • Some cancers.
  • Hormone therapy.
  • Infections.
  • Old age.

Thrombosis and COVID-19

Thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot, known as a thrombus, within a blood vessel. It prevents blood from flowing normally through the circulatory system.

If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, and previously had a blood clot, make sure you tell your healthcare provider immediately.
