Denmark to extend suspension of AstraZeneca COVID-19 shot: Reports
Denmark will extend its suspension of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine for another three weeks, broadcaster TV 2 reported on Thursday, citing sources.
Two weeks ago, Denmark was among the first countries in Europe to temporarily suspend the use of AstraZeneca’s vaccine after a small number of reported cases of rare brain blood clots, registered both in Denmark and elsewhere.
The government briefed the Danish parliament about the continued suspension Thursday morning, TV 2 said.
The Danish Health Authority, which originally announced the suspension, is expected to announce their decision about the vaccine at a press briefing 11:30 GMT on Thursday.
