Ireland has temporarily suspended the use of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine following a report from Norway of patients developing blood clots post inoculation.

The Norwegian Medicines Agency on Saturday said there were four new cases of serious blood clotting in adults after taking the vaccine.

Ireland is the latest in the string of European countries who have decided to partially or fully suspend the rollout of the AstraZeneca vaccine following reports of patients developing blood clots after inoculations.

AstraZeneca says it has examined the data of those vaccinated across the EU and the UK and says it shows no evidence of an increased risk of blood clots.

The Irish National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) made the directive as a precaution though it “has not been concluded that there is any link between the AstraZeneca vaccine and these cases,” it said in a statement.
