Danish authorities have announced they will stop using the AstraZeneca jab in their country. The vaccine, developed in tandem with Oxford University, is one of several now proven to protect against the disease. EU countries have approached it with caution, however, with many demanding additional data before rollout.
Why has Denmark stopped using the AstraZeneca jab?
While the AstraZeneca vaccine is proven to prevent cases of Covid-19, some countries have reacted with excessive caution as they consider approving it.
Initially, Denmark was not among them, and approved the jab for use by health officials.
But Danish health authorities announced they had temporarily stopped administering the candidate amid reports of blood clots among vaccinate people.
