Denmark is the first country to fully ban the use of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine over concerns about its link to blood clots in recipients.

"Overall, we must say that the results show that there is a real and serious side effect signal in the vaccine from AstraZeneca," said Soren Brostrom, Denmark’s Health Agency director, according to The Epoch Times. 

The agency said last week the positive benefits of getting the vaccine outweighed the negatives.

In March, several other European countries temporarily stopped using the vaccine amid reports of blood clots.

There has been reports in the U.S. about similar side effects in woman who have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, at least six reported cases, which has resulted in federal government pausing its use.
