Spain halts use of AstraZeneca vaccine for 2 weeks - minister

MADRID, March 15 (Reuters) - Spain will stop using AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine for at least two weeks, Health Minister Carolina Darias said on Monday, joining a growing list of European countries hitting the brakes on the shot over concerns of severe side effects.

Earlier on Monday France, Germany and Italy had joined Denmark, Norway and several others in halting use of the drug after reports of blood clots in some patients who had received the vaccine. (Reporting by Isla Binnie; Editing by Nathan Allen)
