HOLD MY JAB: Oxford pauses child trials of AstraZeneca Vaccine

 

A trial of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine on children has been paused while regulators investigate a possible link with rare blood clots in adults.

Its suspension comes after a European Medicines Agency official said there appears to be a link between the jab and rare blood clots.

Boris Johnson has urged people to get their vaccines, as science advisers estimate whether younger people’s fears over the Oxford jab could threaten a resurgence of the virus. Has the latest news put you off having the vaccine?
