Finland has, as the last Nordic country, decided to temporarily suspend AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine.

The country’s public health authority said two people developed blood clots after being vaccinated. As a result, vaccination will be suspended “until there is more information and a possible causality can be assessed”.

The Nordic countries are now reviewing the EMA verdict that the vaccine’s benefits outweigh its risks.
