Countries using and decommissioning the Oxford / AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine

The World Health Organization and the European Medicines Agency on the Oxford – AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, whose use was suspended in many countries around the world, especially in Europe, last week due to blood clot problems, said the benefit of the vaccine was greater than the harm. In addition, many countries continue to vaccinate, while some countries continue their research on the vaccine.

AT LEAST THE COUNTRY HAD SUSPENDED

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) on the Oxford / AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, whose use has been suspended by many countries around the world due to blood clot problems, said its benefits outweigh their risks.

At least 17 countries in Europe have suspended or delayed the use of the vaccine following reports of people being admitted to hospitals for clotting and bleeding problems after being vaccinated.
