AstraZeneca vaccines leaves one dead, another ill in Denmark

One person has died and another falling seriously ill with blood clots and cerebral haemorrhage after receiving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccination, authorities in Denmark have said.

According to Reuters, the two, both hospital staff members, had received the AstraZeneca vaccine less than 14 days before getting ill, the authority that runs public hospitals in Copenhagen said.

Denmark, which halted the use of AstraZeneca vaccine on March 11, was among other countries to temporarily paused use of the vaccine after a number of reported cases of rare brain blood clots were reported.

Germany and France this week reversed their decision to suspend use of the vaccine following an investigation into the reports of blood clots by the European Union’s drug watchdog, which said on Thursday it is still convinced the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks.
