Norway Later Decides to Resume AstraZeneca Vaccinations


Norway is postponing the decision on the resumption of AstraZeneca vaccinations, Norwegian broadcaster TV2 reports.


The authorities would announce on Friday whether the corona vaccine can be administered again.

It is not clear when the decision will be made. A spokesperson for the Norwegian health authorities declined to comment on TV2’s coverage.

The use of the AstraZeneca vaccine was suspended on March 11 due to concerns about both clots and a decreased platelet count in people vaccinated with it. Six reports are known in Norway, four of which were fatal.

Other European countries also temporarily left the vaccine on the shelf, but most countries have resumed vaccinations.

This happened after new positive advice from the European Medicines Agency (EMA). The World Health Organization (WHO) also ruled that the drug could be used again.
