Dr. Hilary agreed, saying that COVID-19 puts you at higher risk of blood vessel inflammation or heart disease.
He also said that smoking is also a greater risk.
Host Lorraine Kelly said: “I’m absolutely fine and we haven’t heard any negative impact in this country so we’re fine.”
I want to assure people that we will get the all-clear in the next few days.
Dr. Hilary said to her, “No, and we know the risk of blood vessel inflammation and heart disease from COVID-19 is much greater.
“The risk of smoking in relation to blood clots is greater than the potential claim that the bumps could cause blood clots.
“So I want to assure people that we will get the all-clear in the next few days.”
Elsewhere in the chat, Dr. Hilary addressed the countries that had delayed the launch of the Oxford / AstraZeneca vaccine.
He said, “You have a big problem in Paris and a big problem in Venice. There is another wave of infections. And they are putting their population at risk by delaying the introduction of the vaccine. “
“Where France vaccinated 2.7 percent of its adult population … we will be making half of our adult population by the end of this week.”
What happened to the vaccine?
France and Germany are among the European countries where the use of the Oxford / AstraZeneca coronavirus sting is either restricted or completely suspended.
It comes amid reports of possible side effects like blood clots in those who received the vaccine.

However, there is no evidence of a link between the shock and the clots. That is according to the UK Medicines Agency and WHO.
The European Union Medicines Agency, the EMA, will meet on Tuesday and is expected to take a decision on Thursday (March 18) on the future use of the sting.
