Netherlands suspends AstraZeneca vaccine for people under 60

The Netherlands on Friday temporarily suspended use of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine for people under 60 following the death of a woman who had received a shot, the Health Ministry said, according to Reuters.

About 10,000 scheduled appointments for vaccinations were to be scrapped as a result of the decision, which was made following new reports from medicine monitoring agency Lareb and discussions with health authorities, a Health Ministry statement said.
