Denmark to extend suspension of AstraZeneca COVID-19 shot: Reports

Published: Updated:

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.
