France sees no reason to suspend AstraZeneca COVID shots - minister

PARIS, March 11 (Reuters) - French Health Minister Olivier Veran said on Thursday that French health authorities see no reason to suspend the use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccinations.

“The benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine are higher than the risks,” Veran said at the goverment’s weekly coronavirus briefing.

Health authorities in Denmark, Norway and Iceland on Thursday suspended the use of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine shots following reports of the formation of blood clots in some people who had been vaccinated. (Reporting by Geert De Clercq and Benoit Van Overstraeten)
