Continue using AstraZeneca vaccine, says WHO
[Image: _117583299_066126243-1.jpg]
The World Health Organization (WHO) has urged countries not to pause Covid vaccinations, as several major EU member states halted their rollouts of the Oxford-AstraZeneca jab.

It said there was no evidence of a link between the vaccine and blood clots.

Germany, France, Italy and Spain joined smaller nations in halting vaccinations as a precaution while checks are made.

The WHO's vaccine safety experts are meeting on Tuesday to discuss the jab.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) will meet on the same day and is due to draw conclusions on Thursday. It has also said the vaccine should continue to be used.

There have been a number of cases in Europe of blood clots developing after the vaccine was administered.

However, experts say these were no more than the number of blood-clot incidents typically reported within the general population.

About 17 million people in the EU and the UK have received a dose of the vaccine, with fewer than 40 cases of blood clots reported as of last week, AstraZeneca said.

What measures are being taken?
Germany's health ministry announced on Monday that it would stop administering the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine with immediate effect, on the recommendation of the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI), the country's authority on vaccines.

"The background to this decision follows new reports of cases of cerebral vein thrombosis connected with an AstraZeneca vaccination," Health Minister Jens Spahn said.

"In light of these newly reported cases, the Paul Ehrlich Institute today re-evaluated the situation and recommended a suspension of vaccinations and further analysis."

He said the decision was "not political". "All of us are very aware of the consequences of this decision, and we did not take this decision lightly," he added.

Shortly afterwards, French President Emmanuel Macron said France was suspending the vaccine until new advice was given by the EMA.

"We have a simple guide, to be informed by science and the competent health authorities and to do it as part of a European strategy," he said.

And Italy's medicines agency extended a ban introduced on individual batches of the vaccine throughout the country, also pending the EMA decision.

Spanish Health Minister Carolina Darias said use of the vaccine would be suspended there for at least two weeks.

The suspensions came less than a day after the Netherlands did the same. Its suspension will last until at least 29 March.

The Irish Republic, Portugal, Denmark, Norway, Bulgaria, Iceland and Slovenia have also temporarily halted inoculations with the vaccine, while the Democratic Republic of Congo and Indonesia have postponed the launch of their rollouts.

Several European countries, including Austria, have suspended the use of certain batches of the drug as a precautionary measure.

However, Belgium, Poland, the Czech Republic and Ukraine said they would continue to administer the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Belgian Health Minister Frank Vandenbroucke said that, with a high number of cases currently, Belgium could not afford to interrupt the rollout.

"For us, the balance is clear and clean, it's a race against time," he said.

Thailand announced that it would start using the vaccine on Tuesday, following a brief delay to the rollout over safety concerns.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said health experts had assured him all vaccines being administered in the country, including AstraZeneca's, were safe.
