To the unversed, AstraZeneca which developed Covishield to fight the coronavirus pandemic recently admitted that its vaccine may cause side effects and result to a rare condition termed TTS (Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome). On this note, people who were administered with this dose posted memes alongside those who took the alternative Covaxin. The second segment of people jokingly spoke about feeling more safe and secure with their dose.

In a legal document submitted to a court in the UK, the British drugmaker stated that TTS could occur in certain people administered with the vaccine, leading to major health concerns like blood clotting and reduced platelet count.

Reportedly, the first case of the rare effect was diagnosed in 2021 where a man given Covishield suffered a permanent brain injury after severe bleeding and clotting.
