German region ready to resume AstraZeneca vaccination - premier

BERLIN, March 18 (Reuters) - The western German region of Rhineland-Palatinate is ready to resume administering the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine, its premier said on Thursday after the European Medicines Agency said the product’s benefits outweighed any risks it posed.

“Today’s decision is clear,” premier Malu Dreyer told Funke newspapers. “As soon as the government gives the green light, we will also resume vaccinating.” (Reporting by Thomas Escritt; Editing by Maria Sheahan)
