Prophet says AstraZeneca blood clot reports vindicates his Covid-19 vaccines fears

Lilongwe-based Prophet Amos Kambale has said he has been vindicated for advising his followers not to accept the Made-in-India coronavirus vaccines,  AstraZeneca which is a donations from the Covax facility, a UN initiative to ensure Covid-19 vaccine access to the world’s most vulnerable, saying the reports that Denmark, Iceland and Norway have suspended the  vaccine while the European Union’s medicines regulator investigates whether the shot could be linked to a number of reports of blood clots lends credit to his fears.

President Chakwera:I have volunteered to be the first one to be vaccinated so that you can see that the vaccine is safe
Chilima received a dose of the coronavirus vaccine

Prophet Kambale: Oxford/AstraZeneca jab is causing ‘Kuuma magazi’ [blood clotting] and there have been several deaths from clotting after vaccination
Denmark announced a two-week suspension on Thursday following a number of reports of clotting in the country, including one fatal case. Iceland and Norway followed suit, but did not say how long their suspensions would last.

Thailand on Friday became the first Asian country to halt the use of the jab over safety concerns.

Austria and Italy, meanwhile, have said that they will stop using certain batches of the vaccine as a precautionary measure.

Prophet Kambale – who is the founder and overseer of Life International Church (LIC) –   maintains  that the Made-in-India coronavirus vaccines which Malawi has rolled out is not safe.

“The vaccine is unsafe and a threat to the people,” he insisted.

Malawi government has, however, have defended their use of the shot and said they will continue their  inoculation campaigns.

Both President Lazarus Chakwera and Vice-President Saulos Chilima have urged tMalawians to disregard myths surrounding the AstraZeneca Oxford vaccine, saying scientists have certified it safe and effective.

Chakwera said: “No one should fool or lie to Malawians about this vaccine; scientists have proven that it is safe and effective. As a show of good faith, I volunteered to get vaccinated so that you can see the vaccine is safe.”

Chilima said he and the President decided to be the first to take the vaccine to inspire Malawians to do the same, especially when it is rolled out on a larger scale.

He said: “According to the experts, the main reasons for the choice of this vaccine include the fact that AstraZeneca is safe to use with minimum reported adverse effects following immunisation.

Chilima stressed that the vaccination is “voluntary.”

Health rights activist Maziko Matemba, who also got vaccinated in Mzuzu, said people should get the right information from health experts and ignore rumours.

AstraZeneca has said the vaccine has been studied extensively during Phase 3 trials and peer-reviewed data confirms the shot is “generally well tolerated.”

The Ministry of Health is targeting to immunise 11 million people, representing 60 percent of the Malawi’s critical population.

How do u defend something that has such side effects,
Let’s learn nfrom Magufuli
A leader also has a duty to research

Instead of just accepting anything
African leaders work up from such slumber,
Have your children and wives been vaccinated

Amen prophet. What we are querying is about the side effects of this vaccine that they must be disclosed to the citizens. We know even panadol has side effects to others that’s why if you r allergic to it, you are given aspirin or something. The point is, tell citizens that once they feel certain disorders after taking the vaccine, they should run to the hospital. The issue of blood clotting is true and those countries are not stupid to lie to the world. I know presidents, once they notice wird feeling in their bodies, they will run to India… Read more »

Blind followers. Ntchito ikusowa these days and people have resorted to stealing decently by claiming to be prophets. These are people who have no churches and congregate under trees and in classrooms. They cheat that the have healing powers and milk those are in despair. Wina ndi uyu anathawa bail ku South Africa. You do not even have knowledge of how vaccines work. These things have experts and it is absurd to comment on them mupusa. You already know that our literacy levels are very low and as such you can easily lead people astray. People are dying and we… Read more »

Astra Zeneca is from Oxford uk and not from India. People in uk including the queen and prime ministers and everybody is getting this in uk. More than 20 million people have received this and are ok. I have also received this with no side effects. Please find out the facts before reporting

The story is poorly written. There is no clear indication as to why the Nordic countries have suspended the vaccine. No country has said the vaccine is bad and there is no direct link of the vaccine to the blood clots. It is just a suscipicion and the the decision has been taken as a precaution.The vaccine is still good.This kind of reporting is dangerous.

Apparently the blood clots found in the vaccinated people are not different from blood clots which you would find in the general population. This is why many countries, especially the much bigger ones such as the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal etc HAVE NOT suspended the Astra Zeneca vaccine. As other people have noted above, no medicine/vaccine is 100% perfect for everyone. I take BP meds: Some types make me sick while another person taking the same medicine will be fine. Please let’s stop this nonsense. Crossing the road in town is more risky; yet we cross these roads… Read more »
