Yes the pollies in the EU halting the AZ vaccine jabs because of some clotting problems that the regulatory authorities were quite happy because of the quite low numbers. Seems the pollies think themselves more highly qualified than the scientific experts.It's very odd - they've gotten off on a very poor start in terms of vaccination numbers and the UK has *smashed* their numbers completely. Now, that's not a Brexit thing - local health and security matters have always been the business of the member state. They all have health care systems which are usually free at point of delivery (and certainly so for vaccination programs) - why are they making such a hash of it ?
Some of it is vaccine hesitancy and while I'd normally say "stupid gotta stupid" a lot of this does seem founded in some fairly politicised messaging on the subject of some vaccines (looking at you here, AZ)
