The Swedish National Institute of Public Health is temporarily stopping the use of AstraZeneca’s vaccines. 

Several other countries, including Norway, Germany, and France, to name just a few, have done the same.

The decision was announced by several regional vaccine coordinators in Sweden on Tuesday morning, according to TT.

The Public Health Authority has not yet commented on the case itself.

There are reports of side effects such as blood clots in people who have recently been vaccinated with AstraZeneca’s corona vaccine in other countries. 

So far, no such link has been confirmed, but several countries have suspended vaccination pending more thorough investigations.
