The health authorities in Denmark are considering allowing voluntary vaccination with AstraZeneca’s Vaxzevria vaccine – under certain conditions. But a lot of issues would need to be clarified before that could happen.

The information appeared in a reply sent to the Danish parliament (Folketing), which has asked the Danish health directorate to comment on the 200,000 doses of Vaxzevria that Denmark has received, but not used.

Denmark recently decided to remove the AstraZeneca vaccine from its vaccination program.

“Overall, the health authorities are considering whether it is possible to establish an offer where people who want it can choose to be vaccinated with Vaxzevria outside the mass vaccination program,” the authorities wrote.

At the same time, the directorate said that they see no particular reason for such a decision because it would take weeks to clarify a number of issues, and the gains will be smaller and smaller over time.
