The first country in Europe to abandon AstraZeneca’s vaccine against Covid-19 in April, Denmark announced on Monday that it would also drop Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine because of possible serious side effects, despite green lights from the European regulator and WHO to use it.

“The Danish National Health Authority has 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 serum injection thrombosis), in people receiving the vaccine. Therefore, (she) will continue the Danish Covid-19 mass vaccination program without the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, ”she said in a statement.
