0

France has joined top countries like, Germany, Italy and Spain to suspended the use of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine after several reports of blood clots in people who received the shot in Europe. 

Recall that the World Health Organization (WHO) has backed the use of the vaccine and said it has seen no evidence that the shot had caused clotting. 

But the President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday that France was suspending the use of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, pending a review of its safety by the European Medicines Agency. 

"The decision has been made… to suspend the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine as a precaution, hoping that we can resume it quickly if the judgement of the EMA allows it," Macron told a press conference, adding that an announcement by the EMA was expected on Tuesday afternoon. 

"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. 

He said the suspension was, for now, effective “until Tuesday afternoon when the EMA should deliver its opinion.
