I’ve posted this on Facebook but I’m still puzzled.

Even if we accept that covid-19 vaccines are ‘safe’ it is not logical to assume that all covid-19 vaccines are equally safe. Is it not responsible to ask why the UK is rolling out the AZ vaccine while Norway rejects it? Should there not be a discussion about this? Or do people think it doesn’t matter?

Norway will remove the AstraZeneca Plc shots from its Covid-19 inoculation program due to the risk of rare blood clots, in a move the country said will have little effect on the national vaccination timeline.

“The government has decided that the AstraZeneca vaccine will not be used in Norway, not even voluntarily,” Prime Minister Erna Solberg said at a news conference on Wednesday.

Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine will remain on hold and may be offered on a voluntary basis, the premier told reporters. The government also decided to start vaccinating younger adults sooner and is considering redistributing more doses to the municipalities with the highest level of infection.
