New Delhi: The Dutch officials on Sunday temporarily suspended the use of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine. Dutch government’s decision comes when side effects of AstraZeneca coronavirus were reported in Denmark and Norway.

The Health Ministry of Netherlands in its statement said that “Based on new information, the Dutch Medicines Authority has advised, as a precautionary measure and pending further investigation, to suspend the administration of the AstraZeneca vaccine.”

Hugo de Jonge – Health Minister of Netherlands added that “The crucial question is whether these are complaints after or because of the vaccination. There should be no doubt about the vaccines. We still need to be careful, so it is wise to press the pause button now as a precaution”

Use of Oxford-AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine is already suspended by Norway, Iceland, and Denmark after reporting blood clots cases in the nation.

The ministry of the Netherland already advised people to contact their doctors if they develop any unexpected or unknown symptoms after three days of taking a vaccine. No similar cases are currently known in the Netherlands.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has already shared its views on AstraZeneca Vaccine and Friday said that “there was ‘no reason not to use the vaccine developed by Swedish-British laboratory AstraZeneca and Oxford University. AstraZeneca says its vaccine is safe.
