Lithuania is the latest to suspend use of AstraZeneca’s Covid vaccine as “a precaution” until the European Medicines Agency gives a final evaluation of its safety, the country’s health minister Arturas Dulkys has said.

“We are taking the decision now, because over the previous few hours we have received three reports about serious, unexpected, unwanted thromboembolic cases in patients who were given the AstraZeneca vaccine in Lithuania”, the head of the country’s medicine authority Gytis Andrulionis said. “We do not have proof whether this is a coincidence or due to the vaccine.”
