The Danish authorities have decided to exclude the Johnson-Johnson vaccine from the immunization campaign launched in the country, and this because of possible serious side effects, despite the green lights of the European regulator and the WHO to use it. .
In a statement, the Danish National Health Authority “concluded that the benefits of using Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine do not outweigh the risk of causing a possible side effect, VITT ( a very rare type of serum injection thrombosis), in people who receive the vaccine. Therefore, (she) will continue the Danish Covid-19 mass vaccination program without the Johnson & Johnson vaccine ”.
Note that Denmark was also the first country in Europe to abandon the AstraZeneca vaccine last April.
