Denmark has stopped vaccinating AstraZeneca
Denmark became the first country to abandon the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine altogether.
Danish health officials say the decision will cut off the supply of 2.4 million AstraZeneca vaccines in the country.
Danish officials added that the decision would have a negative impact on the ongoing vaccination campaign in Denmark and would disrupt the supply of vaccines for a few weeks.
The European Medicines Agency, Europe’s drug quality watchdog, said last week that some patients were undergoing “blood clotting” after being vaccinated, leading to question marks over the vaccine.
Remember that many countries in Europe have already suspended the campaign to vaccinate against AstraZeneca.
About 1 million people in Denmark have been vaccinated against coronavirus, including 1.5 million vaccines against the AstraZeneca vaccine.
