The use of the AstraZeneca vaccine will not be resumed in Denmark, the Danish authorities confirmed.

The decision was announced at a press conference on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, the newspaper Politiken wrote that the vaccine would be removed completely from the Danish vaccination program until further notice.

Some cases of rare blood clots among those who have been vaccinated have sparked concern in a number of countries.

In both Denmark and Norway, the use of the vaccine has been temporarily stopped for over a month. Many other countries have chosen to only offer the vaccine to people over a certain age.

Denmark is the first country to stop using the vaccine entirely. At the same time, the Danish Medicines Agency emphasized that they do not fundamentally disagree with the European Medicines Agency (EMA), which believes that the AstraZeneca vaccine is effective.

Norwegian authorities will present a new assessment of the AstraZeneca vaccine on Thursday.
