“The Danish Health Authority has decided to continue the vaccination against Covid-19 without the vaccine from AstraZeneca,” it said in a statement.

The decision, which would remove the jab from Denmark’s vaccination scheme, could delay the country’s vaccine rollout by up to four weeks, based on previous statements by health bodies.

Denmark, a country of 5.8 million people, is in the process of reopening schools, restaurants, shopping malls and cultural activities, after the daily infection rate has slowed to 500-600 a day.
