A 66-year-old ACT woman who was hospitalised with probable blood clots believed to be caused by the AstraZeneca vaccine has left hospital.
"That was the ACT's first and only reported case at this point in time of the thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome [TTS]," Health Minister Rachel Stephen-Smith said.
"There's no update in relation to the woman, she's doing well and she's not in hospital."
ACT Health said they do not discuss patient details.
