(Bloomberg) — Denmark has become the first country in the European Union to drop AstraZeneca Plc’s vaccine from its Covid-19 inoculation program amid concerns over serious side effects.
Soren Brostrom, the head of the Danish Health Authority, said on Wednesday that his “best estimate” based on local research suggests a 1-in-40,000 risk of getting a blood clot after an Astra shot. He also said the higher incidence of clotting among younger women appears to be linked to the fact that a lot of health-care workers were inoculated early on, many of whom are female.
Danish authorities said that people who have already received a first Astra shot will be offered their second jab from another producer, such as Pfizer Inc./BioNTech SE or Moderna Inc.Denmark Becomes First in EU to Drop AstraZeneca Vaccine
So vaccines according to the mass media are all safe and effective, plus they cannot cause any negative side effects or deaths. So why did an entire country decide to ban one out of three COVID-19 vaccines? Maybe Denmark came to the conclusion that they are not safe nor effective?
Why is one safe and effective when another is not?
What made them change their minds?
How can they be offered another jab from a different manufacturer, when those same vaccine producers warn people to NOT mix and match? How can that be safe and effective, when no studies have been done on mixing and matching different vaccines in the first and second doses?
