Slovakia has suspended the use of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 jab for first-time vaccinations. The Slovakia Ministry of Health Stated: “ People who are waiting for the second dose of this vaccine are currently being vaccinated with Astra Zeneca. Vaccination with this company for first-time vaccines has been suspended.
The Ministry of Health is currently considering several alternatives for how we will proceed in this matter in Slovakia. We are completing all expert opinions and we will follow up on this later this week.”.
The decision comes after the country’s State Institute for Drug Control (ŠÚKL) ruled that the death of a 47-year-old woman was likely connected to the jab.
