Norway drops AstraZeneca vaccine
A government-appointed commission had recommended that both vaccines should be excluded from Norway's vaccination programme due to a risk of rare but harmful side-effects.
The Johnson & Johnson vaccine was never deployed in Norway, but Solberg said the country would hold on to the doses it had already received.
"We want to build up back-up stocks that we can use if infections increase or if there are failures in deliveries from other vaccine producers," Solberg told reporters. ■
