The vaccine manufacturer AstraZeneca believes their vaccine is safe, despite the fact that countries such as Denmark are stopping its use for fear of serious side effects.
No association has been established between vaccines and suspected adverse reactions, which are severe blood clots.
“Patient safety is the highest priority for AstraZeneca. The supervisory authorities have clear and strict efficacy and safety requirements for the approval of all new drugs, and that includes our vaccine.
“The safety of the vaccine has been studied extensively in clinical third-phase studies, and peer-reviewed data confirm that the vaccine is generally well-tolerated,” AstraZeneca wrote in a comment to news bureau NTB.
The company emphasized that they are aware of the Danish investigation.
Norwegian health authorities have held urgent meetings related to these developments on Thursday.
