A number of countries have halted treatments with the AstraZeneca vaccine due to multiple reports of alarming side effects, primarily involving blood clots. Vaccination with AstraZeneca has been halted not just in European countries, but in Iceland and Thailand as well.
Germany had held off action on the AstraZeneca vaccine, but has finally given in to the inevitable and suspended the administration of it. Not only does it leave the country without a COVID vaccine, but it has spent millions of euros on stockpiles of the vaccine that cannot be used, at least for the time being.

Breaking news: Federal government suspends vaccinations with AstraZeneca
Based on a recent recommendation by the Paul Ehrlich Institute, the German government is suspending Corona vaccinations with AstraZeneca as a precautionary measure. The late decision could cost taxpayers millions of wasted euros. It will also further delay the vaccination coverage of the German population.
After new reports of thromboses of the cerebral veins in proximate connection with the vaccination in Germany and Europe, the Paul Ehrlich Institute considers further investigations necessary.
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) will decide whether and how the new findings will affect the approval of the vaccine. Follow-up vaccinations are also to be suspended for the time being.
The decision was purely precautionary, he said. After all, the vaccine will continue to be administered in many countries around the world. [Health Minister Jens] Spahn wants to strive to “maintain confidence in the vaccine.”
Patients who have already received the vaccine and feel “unwell” for several days afterwards are called upon to see a doctor immediately.
The vaccine doses that have already arrived and been ordered are being held in a central warehouse on hold for now. Whether people are willing to be vaccinated with them (again or further) seems questionable. In this respect, the renewed Spahn scandal could once again cost the taxpayer dearly — shortly after the debacle surrounding the ineffective Corona app.
Who will be vaccinated again with AstraZeneca after the scandal?
In related news, an elderly woman suffered a stroke after being jabbed with the AstraZeneca vaccine. This article came out before Germany announced its decision to suspend AstraZeneca.

Woman suffers stroke after Corona vaccination
The next adverse effect of the vaccination will be a case for the health authorities in Austria: A 60-year-old woman suffered a stroke in Vorarlberg just four days after the vaccination. This was caused by a coagulation disorder. The victim then had to be hospitalized. Reportedly it is the AstraZeneca vaccine that caused this near-fatal side effect.
While the vaccination with AstraZeneca has already been suspended in various countries due to massive incidents, the Merkel regime is really stepping on the gas. In this country, people do not care about the potentially fatal effects of the vaccine, but rather give them primarily to elderly and previously ill people, i.e. those who are particularly at risk of side effects. At this point, one actually has to speak of intent.
