Pacific countries press ahead with AstraZeneca rollout

From , 6:03 am on 15 April 2021

That's despite several European countries and Australia limiting its use because of safety concerns.

Ireland is the latest country to restrict the vaccine to older people after reported blood clots in younger age groups.
