The Dutch municipal healthcare centers GGDs have now stopped administering AstraZeneca vaccines completely to prevent waste. This step was taken in consultation with the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport and the public health agency RIVM, says a spokeswoman for the umbrella organization GGD GHOR.

On Friday, it was already decided to temporarily stop vaccinating people under the age of 60 after five new reports of blood clottings and other side effects among women between 25 and 65 years.
