Several Brazilian states recently suspended the use of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine for pregnant women after a pregnant woman died after receiving the vaccine.
The decisions follow the recommendation of the country’s National Health Surveillance Agency.
The Agency recommended "immediate suspension" of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine for pregnant women after results of vaccine adverse events monitoring in the country.
Last month, Denmark stopped using the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine altogether after investigations into blood clots.
And earlier this month, Denmark stopped using the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine, saying "the benefits of using the COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson do not outweigh the risk of causing the possible adverse effect in those who receive the vaccine".
The AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine has not yet been approved for use in the U.S.
