Berlin and Munich have banned AstraZeneca jabs for under-60s over blood clot fears a day after Canada also stopped administering the vaccine to under-55s.

The suspension was taken as a ‘precautionary measure,’ Berlin’s health minister said, ahead of a meeting later today of 16 state representatives. 

Earlier the prestigious Charite hospital in Berlin announced it would no longer give AstraZeneca vaccines to women under 55 after sporadic reports of thromboembolic events in younger females.

It comes despite a series of authoritative rulings by the WHO, EU regulators, AstraZeneca and UK scientists that the vaccine is safe and effective and that the risk of blood clots is no higher than in the general population.
