Covid-19: Johnson and Johnson blood clot numbers should be put into context - Vaccinologist

From Morning Report, 8:16 am on 15 April 2021

Medsafe is expected to announce its decision on whether to approve the use of Johnson and Johnson's Covid-19 vaccine today.

The government has an agreement to buy up to 5 million doses of the jab, but in the past few days the US, EU and South Africa have temporarily halted its use, over concerns about a rare type of blood clotting.
