Denmark permanently stops rollout for AstraZeneca vaccine, citing concerns about blood clots
(Natural News) On Wednesday, April 14, Denmark announced that it would no longer use the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine developed by Oxford-AstraZeneca. Danish health authorities said the decision was made because of a “real risk of severe side effects,” notably the deadly blood clotting.
Denmark is the first country to take this step against the AstraZeneca vaccine. Many other nations have suspended their use of the controversial vaccine.
“Based on the scientific findings, our overall assessment is there is a real risk of severe side effects associated with using the COVID-19 vaccine from AstraZeneca,” said Director General Soren Brostrom of the Danish Health Authority (DHA). “We have, therefore, decided to remove the vaccine from our vaccination program.”
The DHA talked about people who were vaccinated with AstraZeneca and experienced blood clots, hemorrhaging and presenting with a low number of blood platelets.
Residents of Denmark who have already received the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine are invited by the government to receive a different vaccine as their second dose. This will most likely be the vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech or the one from Moderna.
The DHA added that it can choose to reintroduce the controversial vaccine at a later date if the situation in the country changes for the worse, or if new information regarding the supposed safety of the drug presents itself.
AstraZeneca said it respected Denmark’s decision and would continue to provide the country with data to inform the country’s future decisions regarding vaccinations.
“Implementation and rollout of the vaccine program is a matter for each country to decide, based on local conditions,” wrote AstraZeneca in a statement. “We will continue to collaborate with the regulators and local authorities to provide all available data to inform their decisions.”
AstraZeneca added that it was working with drug regulators around the world to better understand the individual cases, epidemiology and the possible mechanisms that could explain the adverse effects.
