A British trial of the coronavirus vaccine developed by AstraZeneca on children has been suspended according to the Oxford University as regulators across the globe are still assessing and researching on its link with the rare blood clots in the brain seen in some adults who were administered with the covid vaccine. The University, which was also a party involved in the development of the Covid-19 vaccine, said in a statement that although there are “no safety concerns” in the trial, there are certain underlying concerns of a possible link with the unwanted blood clots.

Other areas in the state including Akola, Yavatmal, Buldhana, and Washim, all in the state’s Amravati division, along with Nagpur Rural and the city’s Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), have only enough stock to last one more day. From Thursday, they too will have to stop the vaccination programme. As per a state official, the state government of Maharashtra has not been relishing the vaccine stocks on a regular basis.
