COVID-19: Some EU countries resume AstraZeneca vaccine roll-out

Sky, 19 Mar 2021

Around a dozen EU countries had suspended its use after reports of rare blood disorders in a handful of people.

Sweden says it will also take a decision about its paused rollout next week while Ireland expects to announce on Friday what course of action it will take.
