Spain to resume use of AstraZeneca's coronavirus vaccine next week, El Pais says

MADRID, March 18 (Reuters) - Spain will resume the use of AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine as of next week, El Pais newspaper said on Thursday, citing sources attending a government meeting with regional chiefs on the subject.

The Health Ministry declined to comment.

Spain and about a dozen other countries had suspended the use of the shot earlier this week after reports of blood disorders, but the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said on Thursday it was convinced the benefits of the vaccine outweighed the risks.
