This comes after Germany, France and Italy have announced to suspend use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines after several countries reported possible serious side-effects.

Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Bulgaria and Ireland have already stopped giving the shot after reporting isolated cases of bleeding, blood clots and a low platelet count.
