Related COVID vaccine production many different strategies was followed by the producers.

Observing some rare event of thrombosis after some COVID-19 vaccination, it is interesting to verify if the Target used for the manufacturing can be involved in a different procoagulant activity or not.

Some vaccine are suspended in some country or under a deep new verify- investigation by the regulatory agency. (EU or USA).

This fact it is relevant.

The target SPIKE-PROTEIN FULL LENGTH modified or not or towards the RBD domain can be a relevant factor.
