Denmark stops use of AstraZeneca vaccine

Denmark has become the first country to announce that it will stop using AstraZeneca vaccine for COVID-19.  

“Denmark’s vaccination campaign will go ahead without the AstraZeneca vaccine,” Health Authority director Soren Brostrom told a press conference. 

In a written statement, an AstraZeneca spokesperson said, “We recognise and respect the decision” taken by the Danish Health Authority. “Implementation and rollout of the vaccine programme is a matter for each country to decide, based on local conditions. We will continue to collaborate with the regulators and local authorities to provide all available data to inform their decisions.”
