Multiple countries have temporarily suspended the use of this COVID-19 vaccine over fears it can cause serious side-effects.
The COVID-19 vaccine that has been put into question is from AstraZeneca, and now the Netherlands has officially paused the vaccine’s distribution through its population for at least two weeks while the European Medicines Agency conducts an investigation for potentially serious side-effects.
On Sunday, Ireland also suspended the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine after multiple cases of people suffering blood clotting were reported in Norway.
For the same reason as Ireland, Denmark and Norway have also stopped rolling out the AstraZeneca vaccine after some people developed blood clotting. Austria, Iceland, and Italy have also paused the rollout of the AstraZeneca vaccine due to the fears of potentially serious side-effects.
However, health authorities have noted that they haven’t found a clear link between the vaccine and the medical issues that people have experienced.
