Netherlands suspends administering AstraZeneca shots

The Netherlands stopped giving the AtraZeneca vaccine against the coronavirus after reports on Friday that at least five people developed blood clots following their vaccinations. At least one person reportedly died. Some 400,000 vaccines were given during that time period. The Health Ministry in the Netherlands is investigating whether the blood clots were caused by the vaccination. Germany also has suspended using the AstraZeneca vaccine for people under age 60 due to a small number of reported blood clots.
