These Anti-Anxiety Bracelets Are Like Wearable Forms of Self-Care

We all have our favorite forms of self-care. We meditate, we do yoga, we go for a run, we read books, we watch sitcoms, we talk to a therapist, we take candlelit baths, we write or doodle, etc. These are all great options to try out, but there is one issue with all of them. You need the proper time and space to do them. You need to set aside a period of your day to actually make them happen. But what about the rest of your day? What about when you’re working or running errands? Anxiety is something many of us deal with, and it doesn’t care what time of day it is or what’s on our schedule. It’s not going to wait to hit until we have a moment to quietly deal with it. That’s why we like having a form of self-care that can go everywhere with u...

‘Safe & effective’: EU drugs regulator backs AstraZeneca Covid-19 jab, though 'can’t definitively rule out' blood clot link

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is continuing to study reports of rare blood clot events potentially linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine, but said on Thursday that the jab “is safe and effective in preventing Covid-19”. Following a review of the vaccine and reported rare incidents of blood clots among recipients, the EMA did not find a link to an overall risk of blood clotting, but will continue its investigations. The regulator’s findings come after 13 EU member states halted their rollouts of the AstraZeneca vaccine, which the Anglo-Swedish pharmaceutical company developed with Oxford University. Speaking at a press conference to discuss the agency's review, EMA chief Emer Cooke said the regulator’s Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment C...

Netherlands becomes latest country to suspend use of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine over concerns of possibly serious side effects

The Netherlands has halted use of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine for at least two weeks while an investigation into possibly serious side effects from the jab is undertaken by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). The precautionary decision to suspend use of the vaccine until at least March 28 was based on new information from Norway and Denmark regarding potentially serious side effects in people who received the inoculation, Dutch Health Minister Hugo de Jonge said on Sunday. “We can’t allow any doubts about the vaccine,” de Jonge said. “We have to make sure everything is right, so it is wise to pause for now.” Dutch health authorities reportedly had to cancel 43,000 vaccination appointments because of the suspension. Ireland made the sa...

Covid-19: AstraZeneca to reduce EU vaccine deliveries following production problems

The European Union is facing further shortfalls in its coronavirus inoculation programme after pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca said production problems and export restrictions would reduce planned deliveries of its vaccine. The Anglo/Swedish firm's image has already taken a hit with several countries suspending the rollout of its vaccine over blood clot fears, even as the World Health Organization said there was no reason to stop using it. It is just the latest blow for the AstraZeneca vaccine, which is the cheapest vaccine aimed at fighting back against a pandemic that has claimed more than 2.6 million lives worldwide. Germany has already reported adverse effects due to the delay, the state of Thuringia cancelling appointments and sus...
