Italy, France, & Germany among countries resuming use.
Countries across Europe are resuming use of the AstraZeneca vaccine, following fears of blood clots.
The European health regulator – the European Medicines Agency – has said the vaccine doesn’t increase the overall number of blood clots, though they did not rule out the possibility of a link between the vaccine and ‘rare clots.’
“It’s clear that the revocation of the suspension is for us a great relief because we have to strongly accelerate the vaccination campaign,” said Dr. Giovanni Rezza of the Italian Health Ministry.
Italy, France, and Germany are among the countries that have resumed use of the vaccine.
The UK had never stopped, and use had continued in Canada as well.
Notably, the USA has offered to loan 1.5 million AstraZeneca doses to Canada, despite having not yet approved the vaccine for use on the American population.
